yeah creative is the best for gaming although they have bad drivers (not horrid though) in WIN7 but they are goodOriginally Posted by Ivan TSI;14193228
Dont get the Fatality!
Its the same as a titanium just with a shield and extra ram, its just a waste of $.
For ~$100 get the Titanium.
If you can, get the Titanium HD.
Xonar cards are good as well but For gaming Creative is better, for music Asus work better, the best of both worlds Titanium HD
Some people have problems with the drivers for the x-fi Titanium in Win7 but havent heard anything like it of the Titanium HDOriginally Posted by Crag;14193270

as said above the Fatal1ty is pointless , the same Titanium with useless 64XRAM
but for the Titanium HD that one is terrific for both gaming and music but it can only do 2 channels analoge , and yeah its more than 100$
so i think the best card in your case is the X-Fi Titanium
sorry mate i forget to mention this pointOriginally Posted by Ivan TSI;14193323

still they are above 100$ (the cheapest decent one is the Forte) ,although their drivers are stable, but they have a bad habit of dying after while of usage and Auzenech has the worst RMA serviceOriginally Posted by adridu59;14193673
Please consider Auzentech cards...
How so? I have never had a problem with their drivers. I've used the XtremeGamer, Fatal1ty Pro, and Titanium HD and have had no problems with it under Win XP 32bit, Win Vista 32bit, and Win 7 64bit. Most of the time the driver problems are due to the user.
I wouldn't get the HD if it's mainly going to be used for gaming. The DAC on both cards are identical and the differences on the other components are mainly seen when listening to high fidelity music (which is what the card is targeted for).Originally Posted by aryuautku;14191798
Fatal1ty, copy pasted specs;
X-Fi Titanium HD;
The Pro has the shield and X-RAM (useless IMHO). The DAC on both cards are the same, so save your money and get regular Titanium.Originally Posted by falcon26;14191640
What is the difference is those 2 cards? Is it just the one for $150 has a casing on it?
