I get all kinds of odd sounds.

In killing floor, zombies a mile away will be right in my ear
In mass effect, the background noises are so loud I cannot hear the dialogue.

What card will support games with eax without all this compatibility nonsense on the xonar dx
that just doesn't work well at all.

Do you have the DS3D GX mode on?

The X-fi owns the xonar when it comes to games tho.

I don't agree with that. I love dolby headphone.

Yeah, GX doesn't work turn that off. In fact I'm using the unified xonar drivers with the c-media control panel.

Really? I didn't have that problem with Mass Effect when I had my DX. Try out the Unified drivers.

Are there still modern games that use EAX?

The unified drivers were MAGIC. Amazing difference.
