I have been very happy with my US$65 Audigy 1 OEM.

If you are buying sound card so you could get EAX to work in FB then I suggest you wait until the patch is out.. as at the moment there are some bugs with EAX with FB... meaning some people (like me) have really low sounds when EAX is enabled.. Patch should address this..

The Audigy 1 is a good card.

I have an Audigy 2 (basic) that I got for a bit more about $99.

The Audigy 2 supports EAX-HD (AKA EAX-3), it's definately cool stuff in games that support it.

If the $30 or so difference isnt a big deal, go get the Audigy 2.

I've always had trouble with my EAX settings. At first everything sounds OK, but after a few moments, the amount of what I can best guess is the 'chorus' effect is way to much, and the level of distortion is insane. Never happens withough hardware audio on.

I hope the patch will fix this.
