never used a proper SC or 5.1 setup before, any tips I should consider tomorrow

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
For my mostly gaming rig, the auzentech x-fi forte and logitech x-540 5.1 speakers shipped today, should arrive tomorrow afternoon (I love $6 overnight shipping)

Do I have to uninstall the 'realtek high def. audio driver' that came on the ASUS CD, CCleaner can do that properly.


I've never used a proper SC or 5.1 setup before, any tips I should consider???

you should use the driver sweeper to clear any realtek drivers, then install the latest ASUS drivers, idk if its necessary but i did it with my Creative SB Titanium just in case so there wouldn't be ant driver conflicts

CCleaner will run the 'uninstall' option for the realtek onboard sound drivers, and they are separate from everything else related to my ASUS MB, so no need to install/update anything ASUS related
