    Hi guys my friend was recently playing operation flashpoint and was only getting 15 fps ,so i suggested he uprate his graphics card ,which he did to 4870 1gb version,still no joy exactly the same frame rates in all resolutions,so i presumed there was a bottle neck,there was no sound card and he was only using onboard sound,so installed my sound card a razer barracuda ,wow we had over 60 fps ,clearly this was the bottleneck,my question is ,he has £50 to spend,does it really matter that a sound card has onboard memory to keep these frame rates high,either way i would like to know what sound card is best to purchase with in this budget or must he spend more ,regards luke white,i did post in other hardware section and didnt see this section lol:dry:silly me
