8RDA+ onboard Sound OR AUDIGY
I just got an 8RDA+ board, and i've been hearing that the onboard sound is about as good if not better than an audigy.

IS this true, and if so, is there a way to hook up my 4 channel speaker to it? (2 jacks)

i have an audigy right now so im wondering if i should sell it or not.

if you dun have a Live IR Drive... use onboard sound

if you have a live IR drive with audigy, use audigy card

what model of 4 channel speaker is appropriate for the 8rda?

Personally, I find the onboard sound on my other system - 8RDA+ - to be better than the audigy that's in this one.

I'm using 4.1 sound as well - videologic sirocco crossfires to be precise.

If you have an audigy already just test it out for yourself and let your ears make the decision for you.

where are the latest nforce drivers located, nvidia? or are there any beta's?

because the audio onboard does definately sound as good, but it cant play as many sounds at a time, is there a way to put this setting higher? i have downloaded the latest nvidia drivers off their website, are they the newest?
