post #1 of 8

It would not benefit *alot* but possibly increase FPS by up to 10% (Rare), but most common just 2%.

I think in the future it will as the scores in games will become very large and more voices will be supported. It makes a difference in BF2142, normally I might get a small stutter in a very large explosion with a lot of people around doing other things in game. But not anymore.

Also there are four cards with X-Fi now and the cheapst is $89.99 while the best bang/buck would be the Fatal1ty Pro for $149.99.
