Pansy ass motherboards everywhere

Anyone notice that it's nearly impossible to buy a motherboard that doesn't have integrated sound and/or video?

Yes, I am pissed I can't find a motherboard to house my 2 terratec EWS88d sound cards that won't have to do lame ass IRQ sharing.

What's worse is that it's also difficult to find one that actually lets go of said resources when they are disabled.

The catering to the "plain jane", "tell me what I need because I'm clueless" masses will earn sales in the short term but it's the hardware geeks who give the companies the laurel upon which they are currently resting.

Its not that bad. Onboard sound (e.g. on nforce 2) is actually very good now.

Can't say the same for video, but you get what you pays for.

I'm talking about real man sound..........20 channels of pristine sound in and out simultaneously.

Hard to get that when the resources are taken by a device that's supposedly disabled in the bios.
