|What should I look for in a Sound Card?|
I have come to a point where my onboard audio has begun to suck. Listening at my favorite radio program on www.worl660.com, 6:00- 9:00 AM, the program starts to skip and stop, just loosing the sound and repeating this condition to the point of almost driving me nuts!
Therefore I am compelled to get a separate unit installed on the PCI slots on the MB.
I have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audugy2 installed on another pc that’s running Win 2000 and Windows XP.
But moving up to a Windows 7 Sound Blaster seems to be a good solution in resolving this hiccupping system.
Can anyone out there point to a compatible Sound Blaster to run on my mainboard which is listed below:
Model 740GTM-P21 (MS-7302)
North Bridge ATI RS690/RS690M Revision 00
South Bridge AMD SB700 Revision 00
CPU AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 240 Processor
Cpu Socket Socket AM3 (938)
System Slots 4 PCI
Maximum Capacity 8192 MBytes
Memory Slots 2
Error Correction None
Warning! Accuracy of DMI data cannot be guaranteed
There are three vacant PCI slots, because the top one is occupied with an Nvidia 210 PCIe video card.
I am willing to stop looking and await any suggestion about the installation of this card.
Thanks in advance for your helpful input in resolving this critical piece of hardware gotchas.
