    I've got an Audigy 1 running. I've had it for about a year and its good. Now i'm wondering if its worthwhile upgrading to an Audigy 2. Is there a noticable difference, anyone out there done this upgrade and can say what they think? I want good sound and zero performance hit in games if possible.

    I wouldnt bother really mate. Dont think you would notice a huge difference. Wait until creative release another set of cards and upgrade then.

    If you want a performance boost try the KX drivers. The link is around here some where.

    I'd go straight to the Aud 2 ZS and fly past the Audigy 2 since the point of softmodding right now is to use the Audigy 2 ZS's kick ass drivers from Creative

    as for sound quality difference THX certification may mean some enhancement to the soundcard overall and not just the specifications themself

    There is no such thing as no performance hit unless you want no sound lol but the Audigy 2 ZS so far is the best least CPU intensive card ever made if you were to only want HW mode and not HW + EAX 1, 2, 3 or 4

    use the Your Paq Softmod which works with Audigy 1 aslong it aint the ES nor the LS vers. the softmod turns the A1 into a A2.

    that way u get a Audigy 2 for free ;)
