I have a Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer and was having issues under Windows 7 so I decided to go back to onboard.
I have a 5.1 speaker system and I just need a soundcard in the AUD100-150 range which would at least have better
sound quality than the Xtremegamer. The Auzentech X-FI Bravura 7.1 seems to be good enough for gaming and watching
movies but it's based on the X-fi. Is there anything better than the Bravura in that price range?
I know your in AU, but I am just using the Newegg.com website to give you a reference of the different models. IMHO thier is really no need to spend more than ~$80-$100 AUD on a soundcard unless your planning on doing some high end audio work on your PC.
Yeah I'm not really doing any high end work, so I guess if the Asus or HT models are at least as good as the X-fi
I had before I'd be happy. I'll check out some reviews on those two when I have time...the Xonar DX PCI-e is 98AUD
so I might go for that if it's any better than the DS.
