    What; I woke up today, turned my mother's PC on, and I am greeted with a rather large green "box" that is at the top-right of my computer screen. Everything I do, the box is still there.

    I am building this simple little equalizer kit, and it says that I need a 9 to 12V 100 ma regulated power supply. Can I just use a 9V battery or something?

    Ok, so how bad is the M-Audio Audiophile, in all honesty?

    Here's the story. Dad bought me a new PC for work (and games lol) a few months ago. We had also planned to record music with CuBase etc. and I knew, obviously, an Audigy 2 wasnt going to cut it. Since the site we were ordering the computer from (NCIX.COM) didn't have any other decent...
