    the only difference here is your Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro breakout box was designed for use with a IR remote.

    the one on my cheap £35 speakers wasnt. the wired remote was just borked

    oh and huskie. when you get back to the UK i might have need of your electrician skills. so let me know when youre back

    yeah, maybe some of the cabling came loose

    Anyone got a nice/cheap soundcard lying around gathering dust?

    I think its more of a subjective thing.

    you wont know until you buy one and try it out. on the other hand it would save you trying to find 3rd party modded drivers to keep your Audigy working in W7.

    its only £20.

    I tell you what. buy one. try it out and if you dont like it i will take it off you for the exact same price as i need one for my friends system build anyway. YOU might not want it but he will.

    so youve got nothing to lose

    My friend bought a 1:144 Strike Freedom HG, we spent 3 hours assembling it. Looks very nice, I probably want to get a 1:100 version :)

    yeah, im not worried about price

    I'm worried how my PC will react if i add another expansion card (hence why the audigy is not in now). I will investigate and let you know by friday if i have bought it or not

    Noob/Moron question...
    Is that card only for headphones??? it has a headphone amp, can that kill speakers?

    We took our time, and this is the first time in almost a decade since I last assemble a Gundam model. I probably need to improve my working speed soon. Any models which you might recommend for me to get?

    just to check netbooks are powerful enough to do most tasks arn't they - i can still watch youtube and iplayer as well as my movies on itunes and some old games (like CnC generals and the older sim city games) (atom n450)

    Never tried iPlayer, but if it can do Youtube I would think it works on iPlayer too

    Yes, you can do music and typing at the same time. I was using Win XP on that, so Win 7 might not be able to handle everything I said before.

    i might consider a netbook then as i can find one with a 10 hours battery life for £115

    1 thing though, can you upgrade the ram to 2gb on these things

    i will consider buying it shortly however i have just found the original 60's batman tv shows on itv 4 hd so i will be watching that for now

    Yes, upgrade to 2gb is possible. Netbooks are not that bad!
