I was a SB user for many many years. I no longer am due to thier increasingly unreliable drivers and support. Not to mention the all the unwanted software installed to run thier hardware.

If you need a recording gradel sound card, I'd recomment the M Audio 2496.

If you want just a regular sound card, I'd recommend the Asus Xonar line.

Thanks mchaelst spent $110 on servicing Friday brought the rig home hooked up and absolutely nothing ..The card is the Platinum ex about five yrs old I guess ..this time techie said "maybe sound card fault" ..Will check out the M audio first if its in my range I'll go that way.. Thanks again
