[quote="Gullanian":m45p8jxl]I have an E-MU 1820 soundcard, highly recommend it :)[/quote:m45p8jxl]
My new motherboard has onboard 7.1, I don't think I'll need a soundcard soon. :P

I know we're wandering off-topic, but motherboard audio really is rubbish - put on some headphones and most of the time you'll be able to clearly hear inteference from the processor, hard drives etc. Creative actually do some useful cards which cost about 10 and sound waaaay better, so 10 well spent IMO.

Totally depends on the motherboard AFAIK, I think back in the day onboard always meant pretty poop but nowadays I think you can get some pretty nice stuff onboard. Depends on what mobo it is I think.

@Ashley
You're right, and I'm a terribly picky audiophile myself. My complaint had nothing to do with their product, but more of their straw-that-broke-the-camel's-back actions against one of their community leaders who had been modding back in features Creative was purposefully removing from its driver sets for lower-end cards or cards not made for Vista. I thought that was a terrible shot in the foot, and I'll consider alternatives when purchasing audio boards.

Great. Now I've gone from saving the topic to derailing it again.

Well there is a difference between derailing and topic shift... I think the thread discussion is progressing nicely :D

My motherboard has an Audigy XS onboard... I don't get any weird interference or anything like that... it's perfect. I have to say I have never had problems with a Creative product mylsef, but I know a few people that have. Like anything though, no matter what you buy, SOMEONE always has really a bad experience (or three) with it... I guess in my case this would be Microsoft :)

I tried Popfly a while ago, at the beginning of the year (maybe sooner than that), but I absolutely hated it, and the XNA, well, I still haven't given that a try, but the videos they have are pretty. That's what Microsoft's good at, selling crap.
