i think the audigy 2 is a good card. i'm thinkin of getting it. when i crank all audio options to the max now with my live 24bit, i can hear it struggling in games. i get popping and clicks sometimes. new games got great sounding music and effects. it takes a strong sound processor to play all them together in high quality. i upgraded from onboard sound to my live 24bit. i was having alot of clicking and popping with my onboard sound. the live was a good improvement over onboard. audigy 2 or audigy 2 ZS would be better. more powerful sound processor with low latency. should improve gaming performance some...

my Audigy 1 LS is a realy good card, it doesn't support 7.1 though. the onboard 8 channel sound on the 2 motherboards I posted are pretty good too. they should be fast if your CPU is (and it will be)

*edit*
sorry about posting a Pro instead of an XT
here's one instead
