THANX ukbilleh i willing definitely look into the auto update to enable my laptop speakers. I jus think it would be better to finad a way to google for the latest driver instead of continuously auto updating. Anyway to all the naysayers buy a audigy 2 then play BF2 set to Hardware to High and EAX enabled i gurantee a small boost in performance. The cpu doesnt have to render sound anymore via the software and onboard sound card (all attached to the mother board and cpu). Now you have dedicated hardware that will do all the rendering and blow your mind with audio fidelity. I got up to 10fps increase. And yes this is another upgrade for all those modders looking to improve performance. My friend has a audigy 2 in his xps gen 2 and a 5.1 surround sound headset and I was blown away. I actually thought his house was the battlefield lol. Here's a post of the link on ebay of the headset he got http://cgi.ebay.com/SURROUND-SOUND-H...QQcmdZViewItem
. Jus use the docking optical out cable and connect it to the headsets decoder and boom your good to go!!!
P.S.- Dont use USB surround headphones like the one i have (MENTOR LTB 5.1 surround sound headphones). They work via you onboard audio card. I called a Creative customer svc rep and he's the one who advised me to only connect headphones in the actual Audigy 2 soundcard.
