    Using Audigy with win 2k here.

    I downloaded the full iso, unzip with winrar, and followed the guide.
    Almost perfect, with the problems already mentioned. ;)

    I understand that you're saying all Audigy 2 cards, It's just the NX is a USB card and I'm not sure this is the same as a normal Audigy 2 card. It does support EAX HD, though.

    ok well OEM and retail will work, ask in the other thread i posted about there are more people with more knowledge in there than me.

    i never have seen the NX i dont think I've only seen the exitigy, and I would assume there may be some issues. if it is a seperate driver package for the audigy NX from audigy 2 it may not work

    Well too bad you ant getting it. Just had to do it. :p

    I love my sound card. Its awesome. Brother has electric guitar hooked up to it. :)

    And I got my xbox and 21in tv hooked up to it. Damn man casper scarred the hell out of me yesterday. lol You know when the ball thing to knock down the house. Mom was watching it in my room. Were compuer and sound card is oviously. Its all quiet and i'm walking up the stairs, yea my room is above the car gorgrage. Then sundly i hear that shit and i almost broke my ancle falling down two flights of stairs.....scared the shit out me...lol 450watts of bass from no where will do that. lol

    Anyways its the first sound card I ever bought. Yeap been using onboard sound untill last christmas. Man it rocks. I love EAX and THX. THX and Need For Speed Unground rocks. Unreal2k4 kicks ass too. It better $250 sound card plus $400 speakers. ITs awsome. And dvds are sweet too.

    audigy 1/audigy 2/audigy 2zs really do need high end speakers to feel the difference, and 5.1 minimum. if your planning on staying on 2.1 and don't care for sound go for a live for nforce. i hate nforce, judas tells me digifire is great and m-audio revolution is good also i heard, but that's more for audiophilers. for dvds and games audigy 2 takes it hands down.

    application updates

    I have Audigy 1.

    Is there purpose to update applications (will I be able to use with Audigy 1)?

    If yes - should they also be installed in specific order?

    Are these drivers any better than kX-projects drivers? (link)

    Are there any difference in sound-quality?

    The kX has a nice function where one can routh the stereo-channels to the rear speakers directly (can't with org. Audigy2 drivers)

    And different EQ on each channel....

    well kX is different driver and i heard is better for music makers and all that. but if your a gamer/music/dvd watcher creative drivers are best i would say


    and answer to skabais, i already mentioned it works on audigy 1, just follow the directions in the guide on how to mod each download driver update. eax/thx console install no problem

    sorry - im in dummy category

    therefore I will continue asking ;)

    I got it allright about instructions, but they specifically adresses just drivers - there isnt mentioned application updates (it just mentions that CTCOMP patch must not be applied to application updates)

    does this mean for app updates order isnt of importance?

    if yes - just dont answer this post - then I will asume it has no importance
