My Audigy 2 ZS just c.r.a.p.p.e.d. out on me last night.... could only see the midi component of it in my System Manager...

So I am to pick up a new card today and was leaning toward the SB Fatal1ty FPS...

Do you know if it is any good for iL2... I heard thing in the past like ... it caused stuttering....

Regards,

Hey Zoom,

Is that card an X-Fi? If so, I'd say go ahead. I went from an Audigy 2 ZS in my older machine to an X-Fi Platinum and though the differences are slight, it sounds better and was even a few clams cheaper.

With this game you'd get more realistic sounds by shutting off the sound and making vroom, vroom noises http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Sound is not the strong suite with this game, but there's certainly other elements to love about it be sure!
