Sound Card, X-Fi or Audigy?

  1. I'm not really asking which is the better card but I've just got some brand new Speakers (Logitech Z-2300) and am running off the onboard sound on the mobo. I have a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum, and I've read that X-Fi cards have issues with the nForce chipsets, so should I stick with the safer audigy range? And if so which card?

    I'm using the computer to run editing software (Adobe Premiere 2) and listening to music.

    Cheers,

    I have a MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum, and an X-Fi gamer card, no problems at all with it. It seems to like my nForce chipset just fine. I've also read that a lot of people have problems, so you never know. But I'd go for the X-Fi.
