If you want plain 2 channel analog sound, then sure the nforce analog sound is ok. It does have treble and bass sliders.

go for the nforce. the sb 512 is not a good card. for $34 you could get an sblive? 5.1 that would be far superior to the sb512.

I tried using my old Live in my system (nForce2 chipset) and it took all stability to the dogs, and I got fed up after I booted it up for a second time and it wouldn't stop rebooting when windows loaded.

I have no issues with my cmedia besides ICQ and Trillian/AIM sounding crappy. Winamp sounds normal though.

...And I'm using 6-channel audio.
But if I recall reviews correctly, Chaintech put the 8738 on their board, but all the other ones are using nVidia's MCP/MCP-T sound controllers (and maybe a Realtek AC'97, but I'm not sure).
