Yeah, that does come to mind but I am a total fan of Creative since my I bought their SoundBlaster AWE32 (around 1997 maybe
), and actually thata post that I talked about is the only complaint I've ever heard.
It is of comparable price to Xonar and the likes, and maybe I'll even bite the bullet and go for the X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champ (here in Japan they only sell the champ from that series).
I'm thinking those dudes (that had a problem with it) had some "drivers situation". Was just making sure
Anyway, where should I stick the card?
PCI x1, x4 or x16 (most distant from everything else inside my case)?
I am asking just regarding the positioning. I know it will work in any of those. But will it better with more space or that makes no difference (electromagnetic interference, heat...)
