    i think the new intel mobos with onboard graphics rock....the new intel hd sound-8 channel....sweet....8 channel onboard...where does that leave creative???? how much of an imapct do u think this new hd audio thingy will have on sales of sound cards???

    the intel mobo with GMA 900 does not rock, even a FX5200 will kick it easily, fue to hardware processin of Vertex shaders etc, however GMA 900 was meant to be for gamers, it's just there so that users can run longhorn DX9 interface easily at low cost

    U will see, GMA 900+ in the future intel chipsets before longhorn

    One more thing, HD aduio is again, good, but not compleately hardware, Audigy 2 is still better performance wise & EAX 4.0 wise

    Audigy 3 is about to come, will be based on HD audio specs 32 bit Audio

    nemesis ...
    hmmm 8 channel audio id very impressive
    but when it comes to audio enthusiasts / heavy gamers / etc etc..
    creative always takes the cake ;)
    it has dedicated hardware to it ... not integrated ..
    and its very very powerful
    tho this 8 channel is an inexpensive and i might add a gr8 solution for this kinda audio .. that doesnt mean creatives runnin behind
    but yeah .. i think once this becomes mainstream .. creatives gonna have to come up with something .. cuz its gonna affect sales of cards ... well everythign else will become obsolete ... but its gonna hit the audigy's real bad ..
    @crackshot .. dude u wanna go for an amd and ur askin for gma900 ?? :D
    well anyways ... search the forum for those prices .. .plenty of threads available with more than relevant info
    PS : get the 9800pro for ard 14k .. best buy

    hmmm. i thought so too guys...and when i said that the gma rocks, i meant that frm the point of view of intel's onboard graphics....as far as creative goes....they will need 2 come up with new solutions although i agree that it makes the best cards and that the onboard sound cannot match the like of the audigy 2...but it will b a value solution nonetheless...2 get 8 channel audio onboard.....that's pretty damn nice

    Whatever, creative, they need to re write their drivers for Audigy 1 & 2, & plz creative write new drivers from scratch for my Audigy LS, the drivers are really pain, except for that, Audigy & EAX 3.0 rocks

    will u plz tell me how many yrs 2 wait. i have already waited 3yrs 4 amd64 to be out. is amd 64 3500+ gonna be affordable. the amd site tells its cost nearing $560 and added a nForce4 mobo whenever released won't be cheap. Just as nF3 Ultra mobos are costly nearing 15~16K.
