    Currently I have winfast 4x soundcard and also I have ALTEC LANSING ADA70 - USB... (no sound card required for this speaker system)<br>
    The "problem" is CPU utilization...<br>
    as you already know that USB-thing "sound-card" is suck out all of your resources (almost 66%... told someone...) so, I should decide which sound card is better, of course in the term of sound quality and CPU utilization...<br>
    did creative vibra 128 is consume less CPU utilization than Winfast 4x? <IMG SRC="smileys/confused.gif"> Anyone know the answer? I wil buy that Vibra128 (I'm kinda short of money right now... better to save for something else <IMG SRC="smileys/approve.gif"> )<br>
    Please... let me know........ plsssss

    A Live! line or a xp theater will use almost nothing on your cpu.

    bugsy, he said he's a bit short on cash, you just named about the most expensive cards..... (not attacking you,just a fact)<br>
    <br>
    euh...what do you want from the soundcard ?<br>
    there are many soundcards out there that supports all kinds of stuff (A3D , 5.1 DSPL , Digital & stuff)

    He also said something about saving for something else. Live Value isn't that expensive anyway. Great card for the money. Buy it cheap online.

    that's true<br>
    the Live Value is really not expensive and has (for it's price) an AWESOME soundquality and lots of options (EAX & A3D i believe)
