X-Fi XtremeGamer or Fatal1ty Pro Tags: Sound Cards Sound Blaster Creative Components Product Last response: April 26, 2007 7:06 AM in Components Share Lazarus7 April 24, 2007 6:17:37 AM So I've got a choice between the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer for AUD$215; and the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro for AUD$298 I will be running on a high end gaming system system with Logitech Z-2300 speakers. Any input would much appreciated. Cheers Lazarus More about : xtremegamer fatal1ty pro pshrk April 24, 2007 8:35:45 AM What OS are you going to run? I ask because I don't think EAX even works in Vista. Last I read creative released some drivers to wrap EAX to OpenAL for specific games at the driver install time. Might be more hassle than its worth. halcyon April 25, 2007 2:10:38 PM I have the Fatal1ty Pro and I'd say that what it gives you over the Xtreme Gamer is not worth the difference in price, as the X-RAM doesn't have much use. If you want a step up from the Xtreme Gamer (say you want the gold-plated jacks), I'd recommend the Xtreme Music. According to this, EAX does indeed work in Vista, but I've not tried it myself: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2006/11/28/Vista_will_supp... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
