Default Does it help?

I started playing Guild Wars and i use a headset with mic to talk to my guild members. I was wondering if a sound card effects the feed on the mic? or if the headset determins that.

Pick up a Creative SBL 24-bit PCI card for around $29.99 (got mine from Circuit City, just look on circuitcity.com for the $30 sound card). I don't know if it'll help with the feedback, but it made my music and games sound way better than I was expecting, and I'm using $20 Altec Lansing speakers.

Having no experiance in this field dont trust my opinion... i doubt the sound car would have anything to do with the MIC feedback... but it would affect the game obvisouly... so.. im guessing its probably the mike....

One more thing, then I will shut up.

This is a review of the card on CC's website:

easy to install

I needed to upgrade my sound card and my previous sound card was a soundblaster so I decided to pick this one up. It's cheap, only 29.99 + tax and worth every penny. My previous soundblaster didn't allow for digital speakers, so all this time I had digital speakers working on analog. For the first time I get to experience my digital speakers in digital! At first, I couldn't get sound and thought something was wrong, but if you have digital speakers you need go to the speaker settings and turn on the digital only output on the software. I just upgraded my system to xp so it should work for everybody with xp.


I had this same problem and was a little pissed off until I realized it was my own fault that my speakers weren't working
