    own an Epia MII? Check this out

    I was going to go with an audigy external soundcard then today I came across this: http://www.soundblaster.com/products...y2ZS_notebook/ a PCMCIA sound card. I think I am definitely gonna go with this if i can find a USB wireless card that allows connection of an external antenna. Definitely looks promising if your building a car pc.

    Yeah but as other have mentioned as well, the quality on the creative cards is a bit better than the onboard sound of the via boards.

    Also, the creative cards do most of the audio work and that means more cpu power for other stuff, not audio.

    pcmcia will be better than USB on the processor load front too in theory, only thing is with PCI cards the 'dongles' are fragile at the best of times and with analog data being passed i bet crackling etc over tim ewhen it wears out is almost an enevitablilty
