    Okay basic question:
    i currently use a SB Live! Platinum card and am wondering if it's worth the
    upgrade to an Audigy card. I don't plan to use digital out or 5.1/6.1 or
    anything. Is the 24bit sound of the Audigy a must-have or what?

    Would especially like to hear from people who previously have upgraded from
    a Live! to an Audigy...

    The Audigy 2 is a definite improvement soundwise--whether it's worth the
    upgrade or not . . . only one way for you to find out.

    You probably don't need but the most basic Audigy 2 you can find from the
    sound of it, so if you go that route by searching pricewatch.com or similar
    you might find it worth the money.

    I think the drivers are lacking, though, but there's nothing new about that.
