Hercules Fortissmo II

Just picked one of these bad boys up. Pretty cool card. Works better with XP than my Montigo II card did. Has digital in and out plus 4 speaker support. It also came with way too many cool tools. game comander to name one.

 

Anyone ever use this? What does anyone know about this card? Got it for 40 bucks. I think it was a good deal going by the features and sound quality....

I got one, love it. Didn't want to go thru the SB issues. Works great.

I've heard good things about those as well, considering the price is right, think you made out.

That is why I picked this over a SB. Too many issues. This thing has incredible sound and the 4 speaker rocks for games....

 

Have to save up for a 5.1 digital setup.

Yep, on the 4 spkrs. I have the Front lead going into a bass/dual satellites, then the rear lead going to my old Altec's for 5.
And the headphone jack for when the kids are playing.

I really can't compare hifidelity issues... not being an audiophile, but it sounds great to me, more volume than I can handle anyway...
