I have just purchased the Logitech Z-5500 speaker system specs "here"
I just want to know that if my standard Ac'97 audio card will handle them, or if i have to buy another sound card. What should i go for. Nothing expensnsive, but good enough to run it. Also when looking for card what specs should i pay attention to when deciding if it is good enough?

Thats a very nice system, if you want to do it justice disable the onboard sound and get yourself a
Soundblaster audigy or extigy.

(Highest up the range you can afford, platnium ZS etc)
And if you really want to splurge the X-Fi Fatal1ty or elite pro

Just to clarify, are we talking sound still or have you moved onto graphics?

Well that question can be a lot like the "how long is a piece of string"

It depends on so many things.

1 - What are your sound requirements (lots of bass, more trebble etc)
2 - What do you listen to most (music, games, movies etc)

At a minimum you want a card with similar specs to this

So tell me what your uses will be and I will see about recommending a card.

Well its not like im a music junkie, but i do tend to listen to some. I also have my hands on games but i dont really want to concentrate the sound on their. I'd prefer better for music but still great for games.

Wil you be just listening to music or do you want advanced recording and mixing features for creating your own?

Then its this one for music.

None of the advanced gaming features or editing features brings the price down but its still got all the bells and whistles for pure awesome sound.
