I am swapping motherboards to gain the NVIDIA nForce 2 chipset and more supported RAM. I am getting an Asus A7N8X motherboard that has onboard:
SoundStorm™ / Dolby® Digital Audio (Deluex Model)
Experience the full power of surround sound audio with the NVIDIA® SoundStormv™. With the integrated APU (Audio Processing Unit) you will feel the impact in games or music. And with the only Dolby® Digital 5.1 encoder you can hear it all in amazing digital cinema clarity on your home theater receiver or digital PC speaker system.
I have an existing Sound Blaster Audigy MP3+, and I wanted to know which would have better audio quality. Should I disable the onboard audio on the Asus and use the Audigy, or should I give the Audigy to my brother and use the onboard audio?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
