    Has anyone had any experiance with this card? if so your thoughts on this card would be appreiciated,I am a complete switcher and have been using a sound blaster audigy card on my pc before I started using Macs and require something with good surround sound.

    If anyone thinks there is a better alternative then feel free to make a suggestion !!!!

    Hey!

    I haven't got any experience with this product specifically, but M-Audio's stuff is usually fairly solid.

    This seems like a better deal to me. Anyone know what the difference is?

    Why get a card if you have a G5? It has an optical out and does 5.1 now if you have a tuner.
