Which/what to get?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be running vista, sometime so support for that is important, i want to get a new sound card, the two i'm looking at are the
xtremegamer or
audigy4
both have eax 5 i think, but here comes the screw up, eax in vista, i've tried to find out but to no avail.
So what i'm asking is, will creative support eax? I read on one site and they said creative will only support the xfi in vista with eax.
How much better is the xfi too?

There is no Vista driver for Audigy 4 out!
Xtreme Gamer works fine!

I can´t explain how better the XFi vs Audigy is cause I only run a Xfi and never used a Audigy! sry

that now begs the question, which is better. I've had onboard for ever, so any improvement is a huge one.
