I have the card and I bought two National LME49720NA OpAmps to replace the JRC's and I really enjoy the signature of the Titanium HD over the stock ones.

Best $8.00 I spent on a sound card "accessory" yet.
but how do i swap the opamps?

op what's your current audio setup like speakers, receiver etc etc.
What's your room size approximately.
Do you watch a lot of movies or just music and gaming mostly?

I love BC2 and am going to be getting BF3 but love my Dubstep too.
bc2 doesn't use you card. It use the cpu. If Dice is doing the audio on BF3 then it would be the same and difference between a $30 or $200 card would be none.

The difference in the two would be amazing.

Spoony it is plain wrong to say such things. Your card is reproducing the audio, and if you use a crappy card to reproduce audio, regardless it comes from the game engine or not, it will still sound crappy.

Play an MP3 with a really high bit rate on a thirty dollar card. Bet it sounds like crap. Play that on an expensive card with good components and playback and I bet it sounds great.

Put your money where your mouth is and try playing BC2 using headphones on onboard sound and then do it on an X-Fi. I'll be damned if the positioning performance is the same on both because I can tell you with 100% certainty it is not.

Well, First off, I would like to try and stay below 100 for the card.

Now that that is out of the way.

I have the Logitech X540 speakers. My room is approx. one of the bedrooms on the 4 room suite here:

http://lakesideplace.info/LivingSpaces.aspx

I do like to watch a lot of movies and love to listen to Ministry of Sound's Dubstep collection. I also play Half Life and Bad Company 2 on PC (obviously ).

It's really difficult to select the best sound setup cause it is said that the Xonars dont work well with Bad company 2 due to no EAX.

I also run my PS2 through my PC TV tuner to my monitor.

Can you recommend a good set of speakers to replace the x540s? or are they fine?
