  1. hello folks at techspot.
    here is my question:
    is it better to use the onboard-sound(realtech alc 1200)
    or should I install my(fairly old) sound blaster audigy?
    will it have an effect on cpu-usage or sound quality?
    thanx in advance

    I go for onboard

    Extra PCI cards, mean
    possibility of more faults
    more power consumption
    more startups
    more services running
