I have a Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3 card
The integrated card is the use of Realtek ALC888 Codec.
From the audible RX you will know it works in 7.1 and chose the X-Fi not fit, but I have it.
And since it has a slight improvement of the Audigy 2 zs comparator, I thought it was interesting.
In addition to the compatible eax 1-5 compatible.
The point that sets me free is that it uses software that plugs in the hardware for certain items.
Is this what you do and what you win?
The X-Fi releases me in the suite at the current market price.
Regarding win 98 which audigy can you advise me as well?
Think a bit has been lost in translation here (not a criticism, anyone that can speak more then 1 language is doing better then me) but I'll try to reply best as I can
All cards we are discussing support 7.1
The RX isn't EAX5 compatible but yes it's a slight improvement over the earlier Audigy cards. Only a handful of games supported EAX5 so this may not be a big deal.
I'm not sure what you mean with "chose the X-Fi not fit, but I have it" both PCI or PCI-E options exist or different sized cards (low height, cards without the cover)
I'm also not sure what you mean "The point that sets me free is that it uses software that plugs in the hardware for certain items." all cards come with included programs unless your talking about some specific bit of software that ships with the RX?
Ultimately I'd say unless you have EAX5 games you cant go wrong with any of these cards, just depends on your budget and availability.
Win98 is much the same story
Audigy 2 has the cleanest sound, (if you even notice) good drivers (apart from having to switch from wdm to vxd) if you want drivers from dos you'll need the modified Audigy1 drivers
Audigy 1's main benefits over SBLive! IMHO is supports 7.1, TOSlink and drivers are less bloated. Sound wise I think this is the generation with the biggest noticeable difference in quality.
SBLive is dirt cheap and sound is still pretty good not a bad card at all if money is tight
