post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
we need a decent s/c in our new conroe build, but in the meantime can we improve the onboard sound , its quite tinny and annoying (in-game) ?

You know the hardware acceleration slider bar in audio properties? slide it down so that it uses only basic acceleration, I've had that clean up the sound on some cards. Also go into the Realtek/AC97/Whatever taskbar program and boost the base slightly within that

We? Anyways.. it says you got a Creative 5.1 Live, if you want a better sound card then go for the X-Fi series, the Platinum version on newegg is currently around $175 with a $50 rebate which ends in 2 days, if you plan on getting one better pick it up quick
