I currently have the SB live 5.1. I will be using it just for gaming. I have noticed that alot of you are using the audigy 2 card. Would I see any improvement performance wise?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Possibly.... and I say possibly because it depends, some have reported an 8-10% FPS increase,which is a lot http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif but again this really depends on the rest of your system.

Post a DXDiag for us to get an idea of what bits you have.

Audio wise - the Audigy wins hands down over the live - you can run at full hardware acceleration http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

not gone into much detail here because I am tired, http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif but if you post a DXdiag I and many others may be able to comment further....

S!
