Sound card questions - Page 2

post #11 of 39
PERSONALLY, the Fatal1ty FPS isn't working for me because the front audio jack panels only offer 1 6.35mm to 3.5mm, and even though it's cheap to buy another one, I really don't want that much stuff in the front.

I wouldn't buy anything more than the XtremeGamer.

Just as a note, the XtremeGamer, linked here: http://www.creative.com/products/pro...&product=15853 does NOT have x-ram, only the XtremeGamer Fati1ity has the x-ram. I personally would go with the xtrememusic, I love mine.

I'm thinking that is one the one I'm going to get.
Newegg currently has that same model for $133 after rebates. Save more bling...

I understand what everyone is saying. I wouldn't want to pay more for the panel. I'm actually saving money by getting the panel. Zipzoomfly with 2 day 1.99 shipping comes out around 10 dollars cheaper than the X-Fi Gamer after rebates.

It's not that I didn't have more than 150 to spend. I just didn't want to spend more than that on a sound card. At least with the rebates I know I'm getting the money back.

The XtremeGamer has less I/O connection ports than the XtremeMusic and it's smaller too. They perform the same though.

But the extreme gamer seemed to cost 50 dollars more than the extreme music. I order the X-Fi Fatal1ty. The extrememusic wasn't even carried by newegg which made me wonder about it.

I think they put all those different names out there for the full purpose of confusing us. As long as they get me some good sounds I'm not going to complain. The sound card is the one thing I've never updated. My friends tell me I had no idea what I was missing.

Now to save up and get me some of those headphones they were talking about in another thread.

Newegg is out of stock on the xtrememusic. The xtremegamer is like 139. Oh wait. You know I just realized that there's a fatalty and a non fatalty.

Now I understand what everyone has been saying. *puts on the stupid hat*
