my Audigy 1 stopped working today - the system doesn't recognize it anymore at all... so a new soundcard has to be bought.

Now the question: what soundcards in the above mentioned price region can you recommend? I think Creative isn't the first choice (anymore?) because of their bad drivers.

Thanks in advance.

Regards, fileman.

Edit: grammar... ouh my English is rusty

Yes, the prodigy board layout is even almost indistinguishable from the aureon.

NForce2 Soundstorm: there's nothing wrong with the chip, it has some nice advanced features like DD-encoding. But analogue quality depends a lot on the brand of motherboard. It is combined with different codec's (most often ALC650, which is not bad, but still cheap), and other components will vary in quality too.

If you want onboard audio anyway, Soundstorm is a great choice. If you want DD-out (e.g. for a HTPC), it's perfect. For music, you'll have to see which nforce2 motherboards do best.
