Xonar DG has a ingraded hp amp, while the X-FI Titanium doesnt. But The X-Fi Titanium have gaming features like EAX3-5 and is a hardware chip. While Xonars do a decent job of emulating EAX5 even tho its not perfect.

If you need a cheap headphone amp, then the Xonar DG, if you want the gaming features of the creative chip then the Titanium, or even a used Auzentech Forte. I know Auzentech sells them at there Refurbish store with one year warranty for 90 dollars,the forte has a hp amp as well but replaceable op-amp sockets while using the X-FI chipset.

To supply power to drive audiophile grade headphones. So they will output at their highest sound quailty. Tho not all audiophile grade headphones req a amp.

I would stay with the X-Fi.
You can buy a Xonar and compare them directly ,but some of the Creative drivers features will fail after both cards are in the system.
Use Xonar with ASIO for music.
