    I want to sound off and fire another round over the Creative bow. I would avoid creative products at all cost. I was previously a very happy vortex 2 owner, but had to make the switch to a SBLive...

    It's too bad really. Aureal's products were excellent. However, they couldn't compete with the Creative monopoly. They no longer make drivers for Aureal cards. Creative bought Aureal out, and...

    The mx300 was the least troublesome card I ever owned. At least, until Windows XP. On the other hand, this POS SBLive I have in now just doesn't sound as good to me.

    I looked everywhere for...

    That is a load of crap. It was true with the original release of drivers some 3 years ago. But very quickly this changed. CPU utilization on vortex cards is actually much better than that of the...

    In my opinion, if your not outputting in dolby-digital or some ****, the mx300 is the best sound card ever. Unless your using windows 2000... like me... then you got screwed in the *** by creative.

    I also agree that the mx-300 is a better overall card than the mx400. I also have a SBLive and I am disapointed with it. The thing is, the mx300 has terrible windows 2000 support, and there will be...

    One more thing. While I appreciate your sympathy Darkterritory3, you should understand that nvidia/3dfx is nothing like creative/aureal... Nvidia's product was just plain superior to 3dfx's for 3...

    Actually, vortex of sound is worthless too... their download links, at least for win2k, are to aureal's sight, which has been down for months. Don't you love how the vortex's far superior 3d...

    Well thanks, but the link they have for the driver download is to aureal.com, which is DOA. Anyone else?

    vortex 2 + win2k

    Anyone know where I might find drivers for vortex 2 card (mx300) and win 2000?

    Ignore that. Go Vortex 2 all the way. If you can get your hands on a cheap mx300, try that. SB Lives are over-priced and over-rated. For games, they are no where close to the vortex2 based cards....

    If you can still find a MX300 around for cheap, get one. Those babies are a steal. Diamond has stopped manufacturing them though, and they're running out. They're based on the same reference...

    Could be a directX problem with the ALS100+... sounds old. Maybe you should try to get your hands on another AWE-32 and see if that does any better.

    Salmoneus,

    If by Aureal 3.0 you really mean A3D 3.0, then it's been out for a couple weeks now. The latest reference drivers from Aureal include both a3d 3.0 and support for EAX. But for 3d...

    I have, they work great. Although, I haven't really tried EAX yet, since all of the games I play on a regular basis support A3d anyway. But, if nothing else, these dirvers seem to help a little...

    I believe that if you had the last driver revision installed, the *.arl files in that directory will be the same. You might try just downloading the intermediate set (11 mb).

    I think maybe you're confusing the API with the chipset. Yes, the vortex 2 chipset was originally designed to only handle the A3D 1 & 2 APIs. A3D 3.0 is a brand new API but notice there is no...

    I would suggest any card based on the vortex 2 chipset (mx300, xitel storm platinum, aureal SQ series.. etc.)... The mx300 can be had very cheaply ($25-40), and with the latest release of aureal's...

    I did a little poking aound, and can't find anything to suggest otherwise. As far as I can tell, any card based on the AU8830 chipset (vortex 2) will work fine with these drivers.

    All sorts of things can cause this type of thing... but first of all, are you using Aureal's reference drivers? If you aren't, I'd suggest it.

    Stu,

    I have had to move my mx-300 around in different slots, so that's definately worth a try.

    Good for Aureal! Screw Creative with their endless resources and lawsuits.
