Heres the deal, for months my computer has routinely locked up in 3d games(Soldier of Fortune, Medal of Honor, Neverwinter Nights, etc...). I assumed it was the "infinite loop" video problem. After spending way too much time finding new and improved drivers and changing settings I read about SB Live cards having issues with 3d games in W2k. For kicks I disabled the card and that was the end of my problems. So, for a multi-use computer, including 3d games, what is a stable sound card? Price isn't an issue. Surround speakers are setup, just need something to drive them. Input greatly appreciated.
