To be honest here, all decisions regarding giveaways come from the products marketing department. So blaming VS is not the answer, it just comes down to money.

Wasn’t looking for an answer really,I can understand how money works in these type of things and I meant no disrespect by it...

But since VS is , as stated ,the owner and operator of Overclock.net ,imho,a giveaway for the community should be eligible for more than a specific part of it , at least some times...

Just my 2c...again,good luck to everyone who enters and thanks to all the OCN staff involved

An excellent giveaway from VS and Creative.
Better audio is more enjoyable just like better color gamut, better resolution, hdr and higher refresh rate in monitors.
My lesser Creative products sound great and this should sound better than them.

Good luck to everyone.

Thought I would give it a shot.

Last Sound Blaster card I had was the Sound Blaster Audigy 2.. So it's been a while!
This is precisely the last pci card I've had. But i had the model with the front panel in the 5.25 bay. Also had the THX 5.1 Cambridge Audio speaker set. Playing original CoD in surround was amazing

I still have the DVD-Audio demo and use it to test surround sound systems. Quand Je Bois was a standout.

I wanted the front audio panel so bad! Remember playing Red Faction with EAX (ADVANCED HD!!!!!) and it was so far beyond anything I had experienced previously.

Also my first surround sound was a Cambridge Soundworks system, wish they had not been bought out and were making full size surround sound. Ended up with a Polk system now.
