It's $179.99 before shipping at Newegg right now.
I'm aware, referring mostly to the best buy clearance a few days ago

Same here but it would be nice to have a new card in this rig since this card is originally for my LAN rig that has the front panel as well.

Really?

I've only had one MAJOR problem on creative drivers.
No "What-U-Hear" on early W7 and Vista drivers so I have gotten lucky out of those driver failures at least.

You could with an adapter. If you have a Radio Shack near you, then you're all set.

Exactly, these have features that line them up as upgrades/replacements (although pricing seems steep to be a flat out replacement) for the Titanium and Titanium Fatality Pro. Titanium HD has the old X-Fi chip but otherwise superior components.

I had a few problems before with Creative cards due to hardware compatibilities and possible driver issues.

- Audigy would hard lock the computer because it oversaturated the PCI bus. Had to switch to different motherboard as workaround.
- X-Fi would get looping static and sound stayed off on Gigabyte AM3 board. Had to reboot to get sound back. It might have been due to the three X-Fi sound modes.

It is not just due to PEBKAC.

The Titanium HD has all the TruStudio settings, not sure what these new cards bring to the table besides "multiple cores".

Me too. I've been using SB since before Windows even existed and I've never had any driver problems until Vista came out, but that is expected, and it was resolved pretty quickly by Creative. I've owned an SB16, SB X-Gamer, and now an X-Fi Fatality. Creative makes wonderful quality products and myself and my friends have always loved them.
