I've been playing around with the sound setup in my P3-S machine (the original SB Live! in the system worked fine, no issues; I just tried using a Aureal Vortex 2 SuperQuad, gave me a lot of issues), and now my attention is turned to the SB Audigy (I still want some DOS game support for this system). The only thing that concerns me is that, according to philscomputerlab, the driver disc used to install Creative software for the card will update your DX version to 8. Now, for compatibility reasons, I want to stay on DX7.0a (there's some anecdotal evidence to point to that later DX versions complicate matters with earlier 9x games). I'm thinking I can just remove the dxsetup files from the CD, and have it error-out when it gets to that part, but is that a good idea?
Does the SB Audigy's drivers and accompanying software need DX8, or did Creative just include that for the heck of it?
