Hello.

So I have an old Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 laying around and I'm currently using my onboard Realtek ALC889. Now people in general seem to think that a dedicated sound card is always better than onboard sound, but the Audigy 2 is much older than the onboard sound. Which one of these would give the best sound?

My speakers are the Corsair SP2500, in other words rather decent (I guess?).

Why not check by yourself ? (But first download the drivers from the Kxproject, http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/down.php?language=en, to enhance the Audigy)
