Nope, you do that in the NVIDIA control panel. It's pretty dang easy. Link the two cards together with the bridge that came with the mobo and enable your 2nd card in the NCP, and you're done.

Oh, and crack open a beer, 'cause you're the boss.

I need some help from my P6X58'ers, I feel like I need a sound card to properly run my 5.1 system, the onboard does ok but think it could do much better. I have a trade up here and on CL for my Razer Lycosa Mirror special edition, a guy is offering me both an audigy 2 (the one with firewire) and an ASUS SupremeFX and was wondering if either of those is better than my onboard? I know nothing of sound but am trying to get the best I can (without spending any money)

Thanks ahead of time

Neither is a good choice. SupremeFX is motherboard specific sound card / riser. I'm sure it wont work on our motherboard. Audigy 2 ... I would stay away from creative card at least for my experience. I've been burned by their terrible drivers. I'm not even sure if audigy has a windows 7 drivers for it. Look for Xonar DX(Pci-e x1) for cheap if you are thinking cheaper go with Xonar DG(PCI) DG has a headphone amp where DX doesn't but overall if you are thinking surround DX is better

I was not terribly impressed by the onboard sound. I purchased the ASUS Xonar "Xense" card that came with the Sennheiser PC 350 headphones from the egg. Pretty happy with it.

I don't think so. I have an Audigy 2 ZS in one of my older computers. I vaugly remember being suprised that the onboard SQ on my P6X58D-E was slightly better. The Audigy 2 ZS does push headphones a little better though.

I have both a Titanium and a Titanium HD and haven't had any problems with the drivers but I'm not sure I'd want to hassle with trying to run the drivers of those older SB cards with Windows 7.

The DG recomended above is a nice cheap sound card. I have one also and for the less than $20 after rebate, that it often goes for, it's great. A nice improvement over onboard. Plus having the headphone amp is a nice option. The only bad thing I could say about it is that PCI sound cards and SLI on our motherboards don't go well together. Also the positional audio in BFBC2 could be better but I never noticed any problems in any other games.

Hey, are any of you running a crucial m4 on your sata 2 ports. If so what do you get in AS SSD? Also, what are your restart times. Mine is constantly 48 sec. I want to see if there is a way to tweak the bios any more to get it to boot faster.
