48 or 96kHz for gaming

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am currently tweaking my X-fi Fatal1ty edition card and came across the Digital Output Sampling Frequency setting in my game mode options. My question is, which is better for gaming with headphones? 48 or 96kHz. And also, should I leave CMSS-3D on or turn it off? I am looking to get the best and correct sound I can.

The digital output setting is only important if you're using a digital speakers, an external DAC, etc. For headphones it does not matter.

CMSS-3D is mostly personal preference. I like to have it on, but some people can't stand it. On the Mixer panel, make sure you turn on EAX effects and disable SVM. That will give you the most benefit. I also recommend setting your speakers as 2.1 Speakers, not headphones. That way you can be sure Windows will not apply any of its (pretty crappy) headphone optimizations.
