Default time for a change?

right now i have a audigy gamer sound card in my computer. do u think its time i update it? am getting the new Z-5500 speakers from logitech and will updating my sound card make a noticable differance? i was thinking about the audigy 2 pro zs, or the new audigy 4 pro (i'll wait until newegg gets it) because they have the optical in and outputs. thx

if it was up to me, my sound system would be worth more then the latest and greatest comp.

-Western Digital 1Tb HD

Depends. If the new speakers you're getting support a greater format (like 7.1 over 5.1) or the newer THX, then yes, getting a new card will make a difference. If you don't care, or your speakers aren't that much better, then no, it won't make a difference.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
