5 out of 5 eggsPure audio bliss.

Comments: This card was a dream to install on my windows xp sp2 box, and sounds better even than the Audigy X-Gamer. I highly recommend. And as always, kudos to Newegg for a hassle free purchase.

Comments: Its not like a dramatic improvement as I expected after reading the 69 customer reviews before I purchased this. However you do easily hear the difference from your on-board SC. My opinion is to buy this only if you have games that supports EAX 2 otherwise this is not a ness. 1 more thing NEWEGG's customer service ROCKS. I love u newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent

Comments: I was occationally having some crackles with my onboard xxxxxxxx. This Audigy 2 card is much better even with my very old 2.1 speakers. Far more detail can be heard now whether it is MP3 music or games. I am sure that with even better 4.1 or better speaker the improvement over onboard sound systems would be even more dramatic. The included OEM software is extensive and includes special effects and a complete player. Installation of the software on Windows XP SP2 was easy.

Comments: Had no trouble getting it into the pci slot (although it is quite big!) and drivers / software installed off the CD w/o a hitch. The sound improvement is quite noticable even on my 13 dollar Altec Lansing speakers. Gives you tons of options to customize with etc and EAX owns :). Great card, buy it!

Comments: This is a great price for this sound card. This sound card delivers very clear sound, especially with surround sound stereos (tested with Logitech Z-640's). Easy installation, no problems. Great sound card overall

5 out of 5 eggsw00t!

Comments: I got this card after using the on-board sound from my DFI NFORCE2 mobo. Not saying that the sound quality from my mobo was bad, it's probably the best sound you'll get from any mobo, but dayum, it was such a huge improvement. All the equalizer and effects settings let me customize how it sounds. I also get much greater volume output, heh, I'll have to be careful with my speakers, don't want to blow them out. The best thing, I feel, about this card, is the EAX. It makes any game that uses it (and quite a few do) a much much better experience. If you want an rockin' sound card for just a few $, then this is what you want. As always, Newegg is the Overlord of all that is hardware.
