    Front audio ports - PCI sound card

    We bought a load of Stone machines including some 'high specification' towers which included both a dedicated Gfx (ATI) and Sound (Creative) card.

    The problem is the students want to use the front audio ports for their projects and suddenly the back of a PC is too dangerous!

    Will it just be a internal cable that I could possibly attach to the Creative sound card? I did try enabling on board sound but then you need to install the drivers etc and you can't use both onboard and PCI sound, it has to be one or the other!

    cheers

    Re: Front audio ports - PCI sound card

    Which creative soundcards are they? some of the newer ones have a standard HD Audio connection on them meaning you could use the case front ports. Otherwise you would be looking at a different solution like extension cable or buying front bay ports that come out of the back of the machine and connect to the sound card.

    They are Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy SE 7.1 sound cards, and the motherboard is Intel D945GCNL.
