which is better (sound cards)

hey, which one would be better?

I have 2 options...

the Hercules Muse 5.1 sound card ($75) (Australian dollars)

Or

the Epox 8RDA+ on-board sound

which would sound better? and I also like the hercules because of the extras it comes with, what do you guys think?

I would think it all depends on how you use the sound.
For some, like me, I can't see the need in spending $$ on a sound card if you have the good onboard sound of the 8RDA. My sound use is strictly gaming and the occasional music CD.

The nForce spec sound should be way better than the Hercules 5.1 card. The 7.1 card on the other hand, would be something else.

well, I will be using it for DVDs and music...

when you say 7.1 do you mean the fortissimo 3?

and are you all certain that the epox 8rda+ comes with sound storm?
