The card seems to be available for pre-order at amazon and newegg.

http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Recon3D-Fatal1ty-SB1356/dp/B00654PTT2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1323267243&sr=8-2

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102042

But it seems that the release date of the card is 16th of this month.

My sister is returning to India and will depart 16th evening there.
Is there any possibility of her being able to buy it for me when she arrives here.

She lives in Miamisburg and is close to a Microcenter shop. If she goes and preorders there, will it be available on 16th or earlier so she can go and get it before she departs?

I am in extreme need of that sound card because I am having a Tritton AX pro headset in my home and am unable to use it for 3 months since I purchased it due to lack of good sound card, and am not going for X-fi cards.

Sadly both top end cards are out of stock at newegg.

Do people even have faith in Creative any more?

I personally wouldn't touch any of their products since the driver support fiasco.

Their cards look aesthetically pleasing, but Creative should have died a long time ago.

You could have her pre-order it from Amazon and have it shipped to you. I'm not sure if it would come in stock on the 16th at Microcenter because I thought they came in stock on Newegg on the 1st. So it might be different for each retailer.

It doesn't seem people are having too many issues with the Titanium HD. When comparing it to the STX the conversation is almost always about the sound quality and 3D positioning as opposed to the drivers.

Not since killing off aureal (and taking so long to improve EAX to similar standards) and problems with the original Audigy.

IMO their best cards were the AWE32/64 line. Best MIDI you could get out of DOS games without spending an arm and a leg on some Roland monstrosity.

Well, thank you.

But it seems that Tritton AX Pro has a lot of problems over Titanium HD. And as far as asus and other sound cards are concerned, they lack something like THX thrustudio, EAX 5.0 which seem to be beneficiary for my headset, though that's not much of a serious issue. I am 99% sure that creative isn't such a bad company to keep up the bad driver pace in these too.

@d6bmg, i never said it was on stock at newegg.

on 29th november, it was stated that the cards were for release on December 1st. Then when I came in December 1st, it was first shown releasing on dec 1st, coz I am in a different time zone,and just four hours later, it was out of stock. It never regained to be in stock, and a day ago, it was put sold out and has the current statistic. When I inquired creative about it, they said that the card was not yet released and they won't disclose the release date. But I am sure it is releasing on or before december 16. I was able to confirm this through another site, seaboom I think, I don't remember the name.

But the thing is, I am in need of that card and my sister is departing december 16 evening, meaning she should get the card at december 16 morning at the delayed latest. Is there any way I could get the card. Any of the cards, PCIe vannilla, Fata1ty Professional or Champion is OK for me, while Professional should be a better choice over the other two. My sister lives at Miamisburg, and Is there any shop nearby within a 45 minute drive where she could pre-order it on dec 11th or 12th or sometime like that get it bought in store on december 16th or more favourably, december 15th?


I saw a post of someone getting a Asus Rampage IV extreme on Nov 12th, 2 days before it's release at micro center. That's why I asked. Thank you.

And, just because a specific line of their cards suffered a problem, we can't ditch that brand forever. Just think of all the innovatives that creative bought back in the day. I am sticking with the Recon3d IMHO.

Is there a difference between the two products? Not price.
