    Why move from onboard? The ADI 1988B with the .6110 drivers is phenominal. There is very little advantage in buying a seperate addin board these days. Creative is junk anyway, if you absolutely must have an addin board look at the Prodigy 192 or the HDA X-Meridian.

    Well for one thing they use higher quality OPAMPs and other parts that are of greater quality then that of creatives cards, plus they have better drivers for the new card, u can see the full spec sheet on their site. Besides this card uses the xfi chipset thats the best in the market, before they used c-media chipsets.

    Auzentech makes the best quality X-FIs out there, the components used are far superior to what Creative uses on their own cards. Of course this comes at a price, but I definitely think that the added price is worth it.
