Need help with 2 questions regarding cordless mice and on-board sound...

I just purchased a custom-built a new P4 pc with the MSI PRO2 850 LE motherboard, which has on-board 6 channel sound. I also had them include a Soundblaster Live 5.1 card. My question is, which one should I use for sound?

Next question: I want to purchase the Microsoft Wireless Explorer Intellimouse, but I'm concerned about RF interference. Does anyone here use a wireless mouse, and if so, do you experience ANY interference AT ALL??

Id use the on board sound and sell the other card (personal pref).

I have always had cordless mice and never had interference (if you do change the channel it uses)..

I would probably sell the card and use the onboard outputs for audio.

With the wireless mouse, I've never noticed any interference. You may want to consider the Logitech instead of the Microsoft though. I use the MS at home and the Logitech at work and overall have found the Logitech to perform better.
