  1. What speakers do you have?

    I went from an Audigy 2 to my current X-Fi FPS http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102189 and I can tell the difference on my Klipsch speakers in both games and music. It depends how much sound quality matters to you.
  2. I have creative 5.1 speaker system.
  3. In my opinion, no. You probably won't hear much (if any) difference going from an Audigy2 to an X-Fi. The Audigy2 is still a very good card. I have an Audigy2 ZS in my old computer but when I built my new one, I went with the X-Fi just because it was the latest and greatest and I didn't notice any difference at all except the X-Fi drivers were more fussy.

    It's really all about the speakers attached that is where you will get the difference. My 5+ year old Cambridge Megaworks 550 5.1 speakers are still kickin' and work great for me but might have a different opinion if I had a set of 7.1 speakers.
