    Yeah, at least mine does. I never use it because I don't want to rub off the Gold Plating. Eat it, SBDead! owners

    I have an MX300 running on an FIC VA-503+ (MVP3) and it runs well. However, make sure you have all the available patches for your mobo installed. One you might be especially interested in is the...

    I suppose you instead of plugging your output into your speakers, you could plug it into your mic jack. This is a round-about way to do it, but it would work. I'm trying to think of some way of...

    No sir, Sir Flannel. PCI soundcards haven't sunk that low, yet. For a long time most soundcards were ISA-based, but recently they've moved to the PCI bus. This allows for multiple audio sources...

    What you'll need is some way to output the 5.1 channels to the speaker controller box. After reading up on the kit, I believe is has a S/PDIF (sp?) input, which, as a single feed, has the encoded...

    I remember reading a while back on how USB speakers were supposed to replace sound cards as they would take care of all the sound processing. If your speakers plug into your USB port, how do they...

    Direct Sound 3D, as far as I know, does positional audio but does not do the effects like EAX and A3D do. If your card doesn't have 2 speaker outs (front/back) then it would be pointless to get a...

    I'd go for the Montego A3D Xstream, as it is a cheap, PCI card that sounds and performs great. Here's a quote from the manufacturer:


    Plus, I saw it for $24 at www.killerapp.com . I'd say...

    Vertigo is right, here. I haven't used a SbLive! but I remember reading reviews on it saying that they couldn't find a DOS game that didn't work with it.

    There are probably two jacks on your soundcard, a line in and a microphone jack. Make sure the mic is plugged into the mic jack.

    The version of .5 Life is just the 1st episode of the game, while there are around 8 totaly episodes, I think. The MX300 comes with the full version of Recoil, but I thought is was a pretty stupid...

    You should have any problems with that setup, Aneurysm. I'd give the motherboard a second thought, though. The 503+ only has 3 PCI slots, and the MX300 will deservedly eat up one of them. Although...

    What kind of computer do you have? While the MX300 is a great board (one is sitting in my case right now), it tends to be a bit processor-intensive. If you have a decent system, try getting the new...

    If this is an intermittant problem, it is probably an IRQ conflict. Check your IRQ settings and see if the MX300 (which takes 3 IRQ's!) and your TV card are sharing any IRQ's. If so, that's...

    I haven't looked into speakers for a bit, as I bought the Soundworks speakers a while ago, but I think the Microworks are around $190, while the Soundworks are around $120. In my opinion, the...

    Could this be an IRQ conflict? I'm not extremely keen on those, but adjusting them or simply moving the card to a different slot might help, as the IRQ would probably get changed in the process.

    Well, since both cards boast the Vortex 2 chip, there really isn't any difference in performance between the two. The deciding factor here will be price and performance. Both cards can be found for...

    That pretty much depends on how much you value your sound and how much you value the cash in your wallet. I snagged the MX300 for $78 w/shipping in mid-January (www.buysoftware.com); and I'm still...
