    Check all the connections, then I would try and re-insatll the drivers.
    The speakers could also be dead.

    Also check the settings in sound card options, maybe the wav. volume got turned down.

    Try looking around craigslist or something. I got my 7900 GTX for 120, and it beats the living crap outta those teo cards.

    Yathink? My net's been off for a week and I'm having withdrawal symptoms. I plugged a 56k modem in for a laugh, and that's what I'm using to speak to you!

    Andmill: bad luck about the speakers, my Z-5500s do that periodically, it's just a design flaw with the early revisions. Can't really be bothered to warranty replace them.

    On the graphics card front, you should really be looking at either an 8600GTS or X1950 Pro, those cards simply aren't worth it.

    Much better than the first two choices, but it all really depends on what you wanna do, games, watch dvd's, etc.

    This is for a friend that I am building a computer for and what he wants to be able to do with it is "Run Halo 2 at Max on Vista and future games on High-Max"

    if you want to run future games on max, then for atleast a year at a decent resolution you should be able to do that with an 8800GTX.

    in the price range he is looking at...NO WAY, unless he games at 1024x786

    @core2kid

    Sorry, but he's gonna have to spend atleast 250.00-300.00 if that what he wants to do.

    Save up a little more and get at least a 8800gts.

    No no no, thats one thing you DON'T want to do. Buy yourself a cheaper, but much more powerful 8800GT instead.
