I was wondering if it was time to upgrade my Creative X-Fi old PCI ard? Things are running fine it seems but I do wonder if it is worth getting the X-Fi Titanium HD.
I have the following:
Asus P8P67 Pro
Sli (GTX580 Twin Froxr2 OC)
With my current SLI setup my current sound card sit inbetween the two GFX cards. My guess is that the card does not help with the heating of the two GTXs also would it make a difference getting a PCIe rather than my older PCI card?
If I got a new PCIe card then it would sit above the two cards and therefore I have wondered about upgrading my X-Fi card.
Honestly if you have the IO drive for that X-Fi you're better off sticking with it. They still haven't made card that can compete with them fully. The only reason I changed from my X-Fi Fatality pro to an X-Fi titanium was for proper front panel headset plug ability. Couldn't find the IO drive anywhere online at a reasonable price to buy one.
Bout the only reason to upgrade to a new card would be upgradable op amps, or THX Sound, or maybe a slightly newer version of EAX support. Bad part is you can't get new Auzentech X-Fi cards now either.
Will it make a different upgrading the PCI to a PCIe card? My X-fi fatality has the IO panel but was wondering if it was better to get the X-Fi Titanium was so that I could move my card out of the middle of my SLI setup and also wondered if my system would run smoother or a PCIe card run smoother.
Does the X-fi titanium use the same drivers or newer drivers than the X-fi Fatality.
