8k9a2+-SB Live Value or Onboard?

Topic says it all, should I use the onboard audio (which I hope will help with IRQ sharing) or stick with my SB Live! Value?

if you wanna solve irq sharing, put th card in the slot that shares with the onboard sound...

However, with ACPI and the limited irq's with via chipsets its tough...

I had to do a lot of juggling on 8k3a+ and my sblive...

disable any hardware that you arent using such as com ports as well

Been there, done that. Moved cards around and disabled all unused onboard stuff, but I still have an IRQ shared with video card, which is my main concern. I lose IRQs when I disable stuff, so If I enable onboard sound it will use it's designated IRQ and then maybe I can get the video card on it's own IRQ.
