I bought an old PC case that had nostalgic values for me (AOpen HQ45) and it came with a motherboard and some cheap cards I threw out in favour for an Athlon-based board. I built a Win98SE PC like so many of you, but it turned out that the only PCI sound card I own is one that came with the case: the Sound Blaster PCI128, a cheap looking card that does the job well enough.
Since I had a Sound Blaster Live! back in the day, I am looking to upgrade. However, I can't find comparisons the PCI128 and the Live!. In my mind, the Audigy cards are for WinXP builds - or should they...
Is EAX the only advantage I'm getting out of it? Is it worth it? The external pin header is absent in my card, but I wouldn't know that to do with it anyway (yet). I don't have a fancy front bay (yet).
