Soundcard positional audio tech question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I've been recently been diving into the audio subforum here, and had one big question.

I haven't had anything but onboard sound since my aureal vortex 2.

How does EAX 5.0 (from what I've read the Creative - Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium would be the card to get for gaming) compare to a3d 2.0? I'm just wondering if I am getting my hopes up that the positional audio will be as good/better, only to find that its not.

tl;dr Is the newer EAX worth getting a soundcard for

EAX is said to be the best, whether you will see a difference is your own opinion.
