    Should I use "Hardware" for my sound option?

    Or should I leave it unchecked? Which is the greater performance hit?

    Unless you're running Windows XP it's not going to do anything anymore. Hardware sound channels were dumped in Windows Vista. You can run the 32-bit client in XP compatibility mode but you'll likely suffer a performance hit which far outweighs any gain you would see from using EAX.

    It's a legacy setting from the old days that doesn't really apply to modern computers.

    I don't know. I have it turned on, but I don't think it does anything. It probably is a legacy setting like said previously.
