I just baught the a7266-c board from asus.. with the nforce APU, im wondering just how good the sound quality is of it, ive never liked onboard sound but from what ive heard Nforce is quite impressive. Is it comparible to sblive or better?
The review I read (of the Abit board) is that it doesnt sound as good as a standalone card such as the Live or Audigy. It certainly should sound very good but most problems with the nforce (according to the reviewer) are poor software support like no front/rear balance controls.
Something your going to get with any brand name standalone card.
Athlon XP 1700+,KT266A,Geforce3, Audigy.. 'nuff said.
