I used to do some recording with my Audigy 2 Platinum and I used the internal box that came with it. If this card still works well (I dunno if it's still alive <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />), would this still be up to the job? I'm planning on using Ardour (Linux Program) and the chip will be an opteron 146 OC'd to about 2.7 Ghz and a GB of Ram. What would be my other options? I have a small 4 channel mixer that I feed my drum mic's through, and I also plan on doing a lot of synth rendering.
