    Hi, I'm about to order some nice shiny Aego M 2.1s, but I'm not sure if I should upgrade to an audigy card (currently using onboard sound).

    I don't really want to spend much on a card as buying the speakers is a treat anyway as I've just been paid, so I was thinking of the:

    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Sound Card - OEM (SC-040-CL) £19

    or

    Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 7.1 EAX Sound Card - OEM (SC-037-CL) £35

    Questions:

    a) Will I notice a decent upgrade from my onboard with either of these cards?

    b) is there much difference between the two?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would reccomend saving a little more to get the best out of the Aego's

    recently picked up a X-Fi for £43 off an auction site. went from a Audigy 2 to it and the differance was incredible. really does make the Aego's shine

    Are the Aego's with those tiny driver units really that good? I thought they were bigger...

    How? :p

    Does the sub compliment the midrange produced by the satellites, without even sounding as though its there? With my current pc speakers, I can hear the bass coming from under the desk, which isn't how it should be really :(
