I just hooked up an Extigy to a an XP machine and doing the same thing.. Doom 3 sounds pretty crazy with EAX on, but it gets a little tiring when all of the dialogue sounds like it was recorded with reverb set to 11.

Call of Duty 2 has been the best experience so far, and EAX is still available in the steam version (which also can still be made to work on XP). Crank that game in your headphones and it's quite the auditory trip, they did an absolutely superb job on Audio in that game. It's probably the finest use of EAX you're going to find.

Next up on the list for me to try is Half-Life 1. Retail version had EAX but current steam version has it removed.
