Upgrade? What's the point...? Tags: Sound Cards Speakers PCI Creative Components Last response: October 29, 2002 9:07 AM in Components Share Artanis October 28, 2002 2:38:21 PM I have a kinda old Soundblaster PCI 128 from Creative. I'm using Cambride SoundWorks 4 point surround speakers. There is a really good offer for me to buy a 5.1 Surround card. Will there be a big difference? Or do I have to buy better speakers too, to make it a good set up? More about : upgrade point Kronos October 28, 2002 3:30:28 PM 5.1 sound gives you that center speaker. Depending on the value...I say do it! I want to die like my Grandfather...in my sleep...not screaming in terror like his passengers. Artanis October 28, 2002 3:37:58 PM Yeah. But I have 4 point surround speakers. So I wont have the center speaker. I was more wondering on sound quality. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
