    Hello,

    Is an old, basic sound card like the Sound Blaster Live 5.1, still
    better than the onboard audio of most recent motherboards?

    Sorry for my ignorance, I no nothing much about sound cards (yet).

    This card (Live 5.1) are very cheap to buy on ebay (less than 10 uk
    pounds), maybe I will buy one, but whats the point if my onboard sound
    it the same/better?

    Thanks,
    Nick.

    Hey man!
    Just today I replaced for the first time in my life on-board audio with
    Audigy SE, and it kicks ass:)
    I think anything is better than (in my case) AC'97 audio...
    You might also consider Audigy Value, or SE, they aren't too expensive (got
    mine for about 18 pounds, brand new)...
    I think it's worth it...

    Cheers,
    Sen
