|i have another issue and i can't post it as a new topic, system tells me it's duplicate.. so i'm sorry for the off-topic post:|
issue: i have my intel d102ggg2 mobo, with the ati radeon xpress 200p chipset and onboard sound+video. i don't use the video onboard, i use a radeon hd 3600 series by sapphire. now about the onboard sound, it's realtek and i'm using it. then i also see in my specs something called ati sb450 and ati rv635. what are those and why are they listed under sound ?
-question is, am I better off using that onboard sound, or would it be wiser to use a pci soundcard cmi8738/pci-sx ?
i have the logitech x-530 speakers and i don't think my onboard sound correctly sees my speaker setup. i heard some onboard sound devices logically detect your speaker jacks and somehow transfer/mutate the setup. at this moment, i have an audio jack plugged into my green speaker output on the mobo, and it (the jack) goes and splits into three female jacks. i plugged my logitech speakers into those 3 jacks but i'm not too excited about the sounds. this pci soundcard i mentioned has two speaker outputs on it. speaker1 and speaker2. can it do better than mine ?
I always say it's best to doublecheck.
