    I'm looking for a new sound card for my gaming rig. I'm still using a SB Live! 5.1 and I'm looking to upgrade to something newer, to take advantage of EAX 4.0 and the like. I'm looking at the Audigy 2 and the Audigy SE, but the latter seems to only do EAX in software. Is it any good, in spite of this? Or am I best off spending some more to get an Audigy 2?

    I take it you have been on the lookout for 2nd hand sound cards?

    ...and what is your budget, and will this sound card ultimatly only be used for gaming?

    Budget is as low as possible. I wouldn't really want to spend much over £20.

    It will be mainly for gaming. That and playing mp3s on my PC.
