A7v 266-e

I have the asus A7V266-E motherboard with c-media sound built in........ I also have a old soundblaster-live value sound card I bought in 1998 or so...... Would this built in sound on my motherboard be better than the PCI add on card? any info would be nice

The PCI SOUND BLASTER LIVE is much better

Only the SOUNDSTORM on those Nforce2 boards can match with soundblaster Live series
And C-media is like few levels below SoundStorm

added: But when I modded my soundblaster Live to Audigy ( softmod) the sound improved a lot. From there I dont think Soundstorm can be better, so keep your soundblaster Live and update the software.
