    Running 2 sound cards

    Is there a way to run 2 sound cards through Windows XP. Here is why: my Turtle Beach Roadie is being used in 4.1 channel. My XM radio that I want to use as well will only play through the front channels on that sound card. So I would like to hook up a second sound card for my XM radio and have windows switch to that card for use when it is in use. IS THIS POSSIBLE?

    in theory that should be workable, as long as one isnt the inbuilt sound card, those often turn off when you put a 2nd card in.

    also another option is a sound blaster audigy 2 ZS PCI card, and load the KX drivers for it.
    then you can get 4 separate stereo outputs. assuming you have a pci slot free.
