It can make a huge diff, the x-merian from some review posts of previous creative x-fi card owns said there was a big difference in sound quality.. from what Ive read thier the best and the prelude is the 1st x-fi card they released (creative owns x-fi rights or something). so for gaming maybe its just as good as creative x-fi's but Im sure for music/movies its superior as their last one or 2 gen sound cards were.
creatives sound cards go up high in price too, like up to $400. I havent looked to much into this card but people have been waiting on its release (some people anyway). Try finding some review of it.

yeah man the system has its own big amp mounted on the sub.. it pounds nicely and sounds nice with my x-fi. though I have blown the sub a little bit so dont leave it on max to much, it might sound clear and nice but you will damg the sub over time :P.
My sub still sounds perfect just when I put it up REALLY loud I can hear something rattling or something and I think its the sub/mount.
