It does indeed seem to be an X-Fi take note however that it is the OEM version. He feedback is over 99% positive and most of the complaints were about things being out of stock.

It also looks like an older model, but I really don't think that's going to matter. It's still a great deal!

I don't care if it is an older model. I am looking for an upgrade to onboard sound and if I could get that beast for that price I'm taking it now.

Oh and what does it mean if it is oem?

The difference is that on retail ones in the top right of the card there is a box with a LED in it, on OEM's they leave out the light. Otherwise it should be the same.

they're not... the OEM cards come in bubble wrap, or a white box... the retail versions come in a fancy package suitable for store shelves...

and that is indeed the first generation Xtreme Music... but it should be a wonderful card... even more so at that price...
