More about xtreme audio good
  1. I believe the xtremeaudio doesn't support hardware sound in BF2, the xtrememusic etc do. That's all I know about it.
  2. Anything is better than onboard sound.

    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.

  5. 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.
  6. I second the extremegamer fat pro1 - I got it for 79$ after rebate...so in my price budget there..

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