Anyone got a suggestion?

Not impossible man.

It's really this easy.

There are few other places that sell them as well. Hell, even Gateway did when they had XtremeMusic on their OEM PCs. Or maybe even DIY, if you are inclined to do so.

That would be possible, but you would have to write your program or script to do that. Not to mention, some of the programs would need to be restarted to take use of the other sound device.

It's more trouble than it's worth for the convenience, but I did give you those links to hook up your X-Fi to your front panel.

Awesome!
Thanks a lot, that's exactly what i needed.
I found the exact same thing on eBay, but a lot cheaper, because shipping is free on ebay and I had to pay $35 on the website you linked me to (I live in the Netherlands)

Thanks again!
