Just picked up a Creative Titanium HD - Very Impressed - Page 2

post #11 of 22
The biggest benefit of the PAX drivers for me is that DDL doesn't crash when I enable it, and the creative control panel actually freaking works. However, if this guy who did the PAX drivers actually messed with the way Creative wanted the card to sound, I'm not so sure I'm very pleased with that. But, it's not like I have much of a choice. It's either use his drivers, or try and work with broken software.

Question: Does the Titanium HD support CMSS-3D Headphone? I thought I read it used that THX TruStudio crap and not CMSS, but I'm not sure.

Yes it supports CMSS-3D. Works great for shooters.

Awesome. I have a regular Titanium X-Fi -- do I have any reason to upgrade to the HD?

Also, I don't know about you guys, but I personally prefer CMSS-3D over Dolby Headphone (having used both). However, when I used DH, it was with the Astro Mixamp, and everything sounded kind of muddy and flat. In retrospect, I probably could've fixed that with an EQ if I had my sound card back then... Maybe I should give DH another whirl and EQ it to bring the treble up and the mids down a bit.

Unless you listen to a lot of music there is really little reason to switch. The HD is more like an audiophile sound card that can also do gaming. Strictly for gaming it is not much better than regular X-Fi's.

I agree. I had the Titanium Fatality for quite awhile and it was excellent for gaming.I got this card as it was heavily discounted and for movies/music (I have a bluray drive in my pc and connect it to my receiver for home theatre) it is far superior.


The headphone amp is nice too (as I game strictly with headphones now).

Also Best Direct is now selling for the same price as Memory Express. Best Direct is owned by NCIX (so they will price match)

Looking great dude! Is that a GTX 780? Quite rare to see a Gigabyte card with a ref design, they're always one of the first to ditch it and go for their own boards and coolers.
