I didnt expect to get anything from you either cause you only seem to come off as money hungry individual.
You've got 4 posts and if the 10 bucks is nothing to you why are you complaining about it? I wouldn't give you a free chip if my life depended on it. Many wouldn't and its not because they are " money hungry individuals. "
THE X-FI CARDS THAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED:
-Any of the low-profile X-Fis
THE GOOD ONES TO GET:
X-Fi Elite Pro
X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS
X-Fi XtremeMusic (best value)
ONES I AM UNSURE about:
X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series
This is one of the new ones. The other new ones are the XtremeAudio and XtremeGamer, which are both low profile. The low profile models do not support digital out (not easily, anyway), and they use lower quality components. The XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series is also new, but it is not low profile. If it is based on the same model as the good ones, it would be OK, but I don't know if it is. So it would be best to just avoid it.
Anyways I don't plan on modding or anything I might one day but I was planning on getting either the XtremeGamer or XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro ..
Should I stay away from the XtremeGamer then? I've always used onboard sound and am now.. Realtek HD bs.. ALC889A So I am wondering wich should I get and from what I understand I should technically see a considerable difference even on the lesser X-Fi's? I have HD555's and I'm shooting for the extra bass clearer sounds and Virtual surround..
