Is X-Fi xtreme audio sound card much better than my onboard sound card(p5n-e sli)?
How does it compare to x-fi xtreme music and xtreme gamer?

Thank you for your reply.

I believe the xtremeaudio doesn't support hardware sound in BF2, the xtrememusic etc do. That's all I know about it.

1.Yes
2.It doesn't
Xtreme Audio is not a "real" X-Fi and uses software and your cpu.
The other 2 are the real deal
Xtreme Audio = re-badged Audigy with X-Fi name slapped on it
Audigy SE (under $30 at Walmart) basically the same thing.

Can XtremeMusic be connected to front panel(in Intel HD audio or in any other way)?
Because XtreamGamer has that option,and I would like to connect headphones to the front panel jack on my case!

Thank you for the reply.

Which one would you recommend?


XtremeGamer by a long shot. Don't even consider the new XtremeMusic model. The chip is based off an old Audigy - it isn't an authentic X-Fi. Thus, your system will never recognize it as an X-Fi card, so neither will your games and applications. All X-Fi technologies would be CPU-emulated, which is zero value for money.

Almost got Xtreme gamer. Wish I did too. I guess there's no damage until I hear the card itself preform
