yup there should only be like 1 or 2 max, 3 and four cause too much space and they're almost never used.

Ditto.

If they release one with good quality sound, I'd snatch it up.

Surely this would be a good oppurtunity for Creative to bring out modded X-Fi's like the guide that has been floating around did. Surely it can't cost that much to use different resistors?

You mean capacitor and op-amps. The larger/better main cap would increase their prices by like $3 in bulk. The four smaller cap upgrade would cost CL like $5 total. The five op-amps would increase prices by like $20.
Once again...

I would like a 1x PCI-E based card. I have two of these on my motherboard.

Oh so they would actually sell less then due to high prices.

Dude, I'm just looking forward to using it for *something*.



Also could use the open PCI slot this would allow me; currently, I have not open PCI slots and that one soon-to-be-not-useless PCIe slot.

Good info, thanks!

I don't think 95% of people would care or notice the difference. Hence, Creative Labs stuck on cheaper components. It's like that in most cases... sell something that is good enough.
