I was wondering if it would make a difference if I were to use a Sound Blaster Live! (CT4830) rather than the onboard sound on my P5LD2.

If so, how much of a difference would it make. Also consider this, I mainly use headphones for gaming and videos.

Would it make such a significant difference that I should install it? Or would the difference be so minimal that it wouldn't be worth the hassle?

(Mainly just for CS and Source, gaming-wise)

My opinion would be with a CPU that fast to stick to onboard. You almost wouldn't be able to feel it with that extra card.

Looks like you will be doing a couple of benchmarks to compare between the two..

I guess I'll stick with onboard for now until I earn the money to get an X-FI.

Thanks for the replies, this truly is an amazing community/forum. Hence why I got addicted to it so quickly heh
