im getting a 5.1 surround sound card and i just wanna know weather using 5.1 instead of stereo will slow games down?
i'm gonna get Doom 3 and Uru (both games should be great with 5.1) and as Doom 3 is a heafty resource eater i wanna know what sort of performance loss i should expect.
(note: i dont have the Creative Audigy 2ZS [in my sig] installed yet!)
