Help and Suggestions please.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm having built in sound issues. No matter the headset, I can't get enough sound out of them to actually be useful. (I play CS mainly) I figure it's a faulty board, but I'm really not willing to waste the time of RMAing it. I also use my computer for work, and just can't afford to be out of commision for that long. What I'm looking for is either a program (which I seriously doubt exists) that can let me pump my volume louder than windows will let me, or would a sound card suffice? And if so, what would be a inexpensive yet stable sound card? I'm on XP. Don't plan on getting Vista anytime soon.

Any help is appreciated.

Yeah, a sound card will make all the difference in the world. Even a chep $10 card will be better but for gaming on a budget this one is pretty good. I put it into computers I build for people that play online and use Ventrillo.
