Thanks for the reply. From what i have read there is some sort of compatibility problem with certasin VIA chipsets and soundblasters. In some combination of these two things the csound card makes loud crackling and popping sounds. I've seen this problem referenced in several reviews so far but i have not actually seen an article directly talking about it. so how wide spread the problem is and with what combination of soundblaster cards and via chipsets, i have no clue.

I was looking at either getting a SB live5.1 which sells for something like $32 or perhaps the audigy gmaer which sells for $85. The hercules XP looks great and has great reviews too. Oh decisons, decisions.

Take care and thanks again,
