Amazing. Simply Amazing. If you are used to your standard soundcard, then a listen on this little beauty will make you see what you have been missing! The truth of the matter is, soundcards built into your motherboard or just very cheap pci soundcards just don't cut it. The creative soundblaster audigy 2 brings real quality, depth and powerful sound to your computer. whether you play games, music, dvd's or even produce music, this soundcard will do its price tag justice and give you something to smile about. I have been using this soundcard for some months mainly for playing mp3's/audio files. I havnt had a single problem as of yet. The drivers all went on a treat, there is software packaged with this soundcard, but I dont use it anymore as I prefer to use windows media player for all my media. This soundcard is capable of delivery, crisp, clear, true-to-life sound at a very affordable cost. You will simply hear the quality as soon as you install this card. A brilliant coundcard from a brilliant manufacturer, creative soundblaster. A must buy!
