Default Sound on MSI P6N SLI-FI

Is the quality on that board any good, or will the driver support on soundblaster xfi-extreme audio for XP good enough that I can buy it?

Wait what do you mean exactly? Most onboard audio these days is decent enough. What do you mean driver support? driver support with a mobo eh?

The drivers should be fine for an Xfi card if you get one.

That set-up should get you 3.0ghz or something...the E4300's are kind of weird as I have seen ones that don't go past 3.5 and then theres ones that go past 3.5 so it all depends.

Most are around 3.0 and that set-up will work fine.

I've been looking at the Creative sound cards on newegg, and I can't see any optical out or digital coax out on the back of the boards. Is ther an internal hook up to take the output of a creative card to the motherboard's optical or digital coax out?

The lower end Audigys really don't have any heavy multimedia options. They have EAX support for gaming and really are gaming cards. The X-Fi Platinum has those I believe....but there are a lot better cards for sound alone in the price range....they just don't support EAX for the extra few FPS in gaming.


Well most likely unless you get VERY lucky the E4300 will end somewhere around 3.0ghz. I have seen ones that go that high but it's very iffy. Even at 2.8ghz you may have to up the Vcore a tiny bit to get it stable.
