    two soundcards?

    Right well basically i have upgraded my audigy 2 ZS by getting an X-FI Fatality Xtreme gamer card, finally got this card to work after hours of crappy drivers . But basically im looking to use the audigy still, as i use TS/vent/skype alot I like to have my headset for VOIP and speakers on for everything else. I did this by using my audigy2 + onboard but with my new headset the speakers and mic cables are molded together with only a small amount of cable free from one another, i cant plug it in my onboard and onto my new card basically.

    So, when running both the audigy 2 and x-fi card atleast one of them would have the error starting which is error 10. I havent found a way to get past this, if i uninstall the drivers and reinstall with both enable then i get BSOD and if i just disable one and install drivers for the X-FI and then enable the SB card it stil doesnt work.

    basically, any suggestions or should i just bin the audigy card and buy a 3.5mm female-male cable?

    I was wondering why you hadn't just bought an extender

    I would bin the Audigy, might as well use the onboard tbh - much less hassle in the long run and you won't lose anything.

    fair enough, my onboard is basic but have to tell yah that the Mic is shocking on the motherboard and comparing the new X-FI card to it... wow , friends can hear me crystal clear!.

    Will have to find a place to order one from then.... off to ebay or amazon haha!.
