My old computer had on-board AC '97 audio and I adjusted the BIOS setting to use a Creative Soundblaster Audigy SE card instead.
My new build has on-board HD Audio and when I connected the power supply to the case's front panel,it warmed specifically to use the HD Audio power supply plug,NOT the AC '97 power supply plug. I hooked it up correctly.
Turns out the old Soundblaster Audigy SE sound card is MUCH better than the on-board HD Audio.
So,is the Soundblaster Audigy SE sound card AC' 97? Does it make any difference if it is on is not?
Can I safely install the the Soundblaster card in the new motherboard without creating a problem?
Will the light green headphone jack on the front panel of the case(the HD Audio power supply connection) route through the sound card when I change the BIOS or will it not work or short out,or what?
