Awww, crap. Sorry about all the Newegg links, man. I'll see what I can find in Canada.

Xonar DX: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...080&CatId=2771
Xonar D2X: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ASUS

For the Fatal1ty, I found it on Amazon, and you SHOULD be able to ship to Canada.

Well, do you play BF2, or other X-Fi optimized games, or do you play Source games, or other games? Unless you play X-Fi optimized games, I would get the ASUS.

As for the differences:

- The DX has a slightly wider frequency range
- The D2X Runs on the ASUS AV200 chip, the DX runs on the AV100
- The D2X has Coaxial In and Out
- The D2X Supports DTS
- The D2X has a sweet heatsink / shroud thing
- The D2X has more extras, like cables, included in the package

The Asus Xonar is the best you can get for gaming and music. I wouldn't even consider Creative sound cards an option anymore due to crappy drivers, crappy support, they can cause lots of problems, and they are overpriced for what you get.

dont know about overpriced but everything else is correct

Well then, looks to me that the ASUS Xonar D2X is the obvious choice, though I wish I had one... You will be the envy of many audiophiles on here, and you aren't even an audiophile, lol.
