View Full Version : Where do your speakers get their vibes?

As suggested by one of the members i set up this poll to check out what kind of sound you guys are using or are interested in. How many of you are happy with onboard sound and how many of you prefer to use a soundcard.

The results of this poll will influence our design decisions regarding pci slot availability, placement, onboard sound quality and features etc, so please let us know so we can build better boards that suit your needs! :toast:

I'm using a X-fi platinum at the moment, if a x58 foxconn board comes with something better I'll just move it to another pc..

Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty here. Never found a single motherboard with decent onboard sound and i'm not a demanding person.

I actually have an Creative X-Fi ATM, but I'm really not so sure if I'm gonna get any after this one. The creative driver support is pretty awful and the creative cards have caused some annoying problems on some older systems...

X-fi Xtreme Music here. EAX 5.0 and DD Live!. Only wished my model had the X-ram. Not really a must have, just a want.

I have not had too many issues with my card in Vista, well, except when Vista first came out. Now that they finally are adding everything back in I am very pleased. I think we can all thank Daniel_K.

I think we can all thank Daniel_K.:yepp:

thanks for all your feedback guys!
BloodRage will have onboard sound with software support for most of creatives features, so looking at the outcome of the poll most people will be happy with this :D especially since you guys can switch between realtek and xifi drivers, depending on which you prefer :D
