Isn't the SB Live! really old? You may get an extra frame or 2 per sec with it but I'll bet the AC97 will sound better.

AC97 is really old too. AC97 is pretty much the bottom of the onboard hierarchy too so you may want to check out your SB Live and do a sound comparison. I used to have a SB Live but I don't remember much how it sounded because I blew out the front channel like three years ago.
