I have an X-fi extreem gamer sound card which I want to upgrade to an X-fi elite. The elite requires a pci 2.1 slot, and I believe the extreem gamer card is a regular pci card.Are the 2 cards interchangeable?
The original PCI slots revision 2.1 was released in 1995. If your computer is newer than 1995, then yes.
Yes, my computer is a 2009 model ASUS Intel core I7. 9 gigs of memory, 1-tb hd. Although I am learning a bit about computers, I do not know a bunch. I do know the Creative soundblaster x-fi extreem gamer card fits in the slot and works just fine. Yet with the amount of external amp power I am running for professional sound quality, I wanted to up grade to something better. The soundcard I was eye balling requires a PCI 2.1 slot and for the price it cost, I just wanted to make sure it would fit and work properly.
