I have some wierd problems with my servers audio card, having big trouble installing the drivers and getting it to work, and now i have given up. Even though Asus claims that the onboard soundcard is combatible with windows 2003 server, i can't get it to work no matter what i do.
Anyway, i am going out tomorrow to buy a new PCI soundcard. When i check my dealers webshop, i find both 16 and 24 bit audio cards. The 16 bit is about $30 and the 24 is about $100. So, there is alot of money to save if i choose the 16 bit card, but how about the sound quality? Would it be a bad idea to save the ~70 bucks and take the 16 bit card?
I need a soundcard in my server because i use it to convert drm protected music i bought to mp3, and for that i need to use tunebite. Tunebite needs a physical audio card to make a virtuel audio card for some reason.
