    I've found a second hand X-Fi Xtreme music sound card for £20. I currently have the X-Fi Xtreme Audio sound card but I can give that to my brother or sell it so that's not a problem if I do upgrade.

    I do a lot of gaming but i'm more intested in how music will sound if I got this card. I've noticed with my current card that that music does not sound as good as people say it should but i've got a Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset at the moment so that might be the problem?

    Does anybody have this card and can tell me if it is any good?
