well, I got my sound card in today. I must say, im impressed!!!! What impresses me the most is that my headphones were kinda worthless, volume was not enough. now, its too much. The sound on the headphones is sooo crisp and clear, the bass sounds great. Im really in shame i did not get a sound card earlier. I guess I Have to thank you guys for bustin' my balls about getting one so bad. I now have one Thanks guys. HOwever, back on topic . I dont have c/f no more as one of my cards is down. I keep saying I am, but I dont look for my receipt to see if I can RMA it. systems specs updated with sound card and just one 4870. wacha guys think?
