    Try the drivers at realtek they are supposed to be the best for the standard nforce 2 sound card (Without soundstorm support).

    You can't because the standard NF7 does not have SoundStorm.

    nVidia was meant to be tweaking the software so that boards without SoundStorm would be able to use the nForce Audio Control Panels.

    That's right.

    Many manu's offer at least 2 alternatives of each mobo, one with nVidia's audio (MCP-T) and one simply using basic sound (albeit 5.1) which is MCP. Soundstorm is a reassurance that the manu has implimented the 100% true nVidia audio solution including things like SPDIF, so long as you have MCP-T (aka MCP2-T on nForce2) instead of MCP you have the nVidia's top notch sound. Even basic onboard audio is much better now than in years gone by, but nVidia's solution (MCP-T or Soundstorm) is not only very high quality and very capable but only has tiny CPU usage too, the best of any consumer audio solution and allows maximum speed for other tasks and max FPS when gaming. nForce2 using the MCP-T/Soundstorm are Asus A7N8X Deluxe, Abit NF7-S and MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (std Delta-L lacks MCP-T). When buying you need to ensure it has either MCP-T or Soundstorm otherwise you don't get nVidia's audio but basic onboard like any SiS or VIA based board. NF7 does NOT in nay way use nVidia's audio unless you buy the 'deluxe' type model, the NF7-S.
