Get the Asus Xonar DG with the headphone amp. BC2 doesn't use the card for processing it uses the cpu. People switch on the cards processing that's why they get terrible positional audio out of it when Dice specifically said that people must turn it off

Once again, put your money where you mouth is. If what you say is actually true, then there should not be a difference in positioning between onboard, a Xonar STX and a Titanium HD. You're talking **** and you know it.

but he will put up this:

THD (-dB) = 20*Log (%THD/100)
bits*6db
bit*6db/bit

and spew numbers out of context and say something about "it's just Dolby" and buy Creative's Home Theater Connect DTS-610 because "it's better....."

Makes me smile and makes me cry all at the same time.........

So, what you guys says is that Asus and the Creative will perform the same in game, and that fault of the Asus in BF2 is not beacause of the sound-card ?

So what's to get? that DG look too cheap..this is really worth it?

yes of course the DG is a legend for the price and PCI+ headphone amp but its 5.1 )incase you got 7.1 system otherwise its nothing to car about) if you have headphones and need a cheap card this one is the best choice

more money to spend => get the D1 also amazing

its all about the money you got

Go with the SB X-Fi Xtreme Gamer if you can find one:

I've had a Xonar DS before, and now I have a Creative X-Fi Titanium and I must say, I enjoy the X-Fi better for gaming. The Xonar beats it for music however. I can't seem to find a medium between awesome audio for music and awesome audio for gaming on my X-Fi.

Sorry, I'm forget to tell the budget - 1000ILS/285USD/203EUR.

About serround setup in the future I dont know really..but I always perfer headphone/set.

Anyway, in the budget I have..what is the best card for gaming that use PCI [not express!] ?..
How's the Xtreme Gamer compered to the Titanium or Asus's Xonar's?

How many games are you going to use this card for? I mean, I know you play CS and want the best competitive advantage, but $200~ USD is quite a lot if it's just for one game

There's always the option of the Xonar essence ST (PCI bus), but I'm honestly unaware how it compares to the basic xtreme gamer since it can possibly to swing either way with a game as old as 1.6.

You should have someone that owns both a Oxygen (Xonar) and XFI chip to do a small comparison for you before you make a decision.
