Well I really can't spend more than like $20-30 on this... I was just told that my microphone has a buzzing in the background, and I'm gonna start a podcast type deal, so I need to get that fixed.

Do you think a sound card would fix that? My mic isn't super expensive, but idk.
I also want to be able to use stereo mix, which my onboard can't do I guess, cuz the volume slider thing is always grayed out.

Don't buy from the creative store, they don't do refunds on the items that are refurbished, so even if it shows up DOA, they won't replace it, granted that the odds of that are slim, it's still **** customer service, plus shipping is like $10, I tried to buy an MP3 player yesterday that is like 2.1 oz, and they still charged me $10, no no creative outlet!

I will not be buying anything from creative. I bought speakers last September and have returned them 4 times and still do not have a working set... they refuse to admit that they have a defective model (probably the reason they don't sell it anymore) and won't send me a different kind.

After 3 repairs you can invoke the Lemon Law statute and demand a refund of the purchase price.

It looks like Lemon Laws only deal with automobiles...?

I'm pretty sure it applies to any products...

Though most commonly it is used for cars.

Laws may differ from state to state.

Funny I've had a few sets of Creative speakers come my way and none had any problems. That model must be a dud. As for soundcards Creative is great now that they've resolved all the driver issues.

It's obviously just a bad model because they don't sell it anymore and the 4 sets I've had all had the same problem...
