Hello Everyone,

use?

Thanks

Why don't you try both.
Use the onboard for a bit and evaluate the sound..
Then try the X-Fi.

I will do it.

My friend bought the motherboard for me in NY, I am in Brazil waiting for him :) 

As I am very anxious eh eh and I am deciding if I will build my new computer with X-fi or not I decided ask for you :) 

Thanks

Music and sound is very subjective depending on who is listening. What one person likes, another will not. Not sure anymore, but Creative drivers have just plain been terrible since Vista came out. Not sure how they are with Win7, I tossed my Creative Titanium sound card in the trash a few years back I got so disgusted with them for the bad support with the release of Vista.

Just recently bought a Titanium HD and running it on W7 64 and not an issue whatsoever.I had a X-fi Gamer extreme Fatality, a few years back , had nothing but problems going from xp to vista/7 so I sold it.
Looks like creative have fixed all their driver problems that they had in the past, so make sure you download the latest drivers for it from the creative website.
You will notice a better sound from the titanium from the onboard.
