Default Audigy Sound Card

How does the regular Audigy sound card sound compared to the Audigy 2 series?

the SB Audigy LS is 5.1 and the Audigy 2's are 7.1
other than that, unless you work with music or something, you will not notice a difference

I actually have an Audigy LS myself, it is a good card.

I think the dude wants the cheapest card possible man. That's why he was asking about the Audigy 1 instead of just going for Audigy 2. If you know of a m-audio solution that's just as cheap, but offers superior quality, post away . I'd like to take a look at it too.

if he wants a good but cheap card, then take a look at the turtlebeach "santa cruz" or the chaintech 150

I am just looking to replace my on-board. The reason that I am asking is because somebody at my school says he will sell me an Audigy for $20.............

But of course I will make sure that it is not damaged or does not work.
