Hey nice to see you're talking about me....
First off I'd like to introduce myself. This isn't how I would like to join into a forum. Hopefully I can enjoy my stay without someone giving me a hard time.
I bought an X-Fi over a year ago. I never said it was the best or that Creative was God. This guy takes EVERYTHING I say and puts it out of context. I actually said there are better cards out there now a days!
I never said what the OP has done is impossible. Infact I said its cool he has done this, but I'm not going to take out a card I bought over a year ago and use onboard.
as for the video cards I said I don't live in MaximumPC land. I live in the real world. I consider cards like the 9800GT mid range. I said cards like the 4870 or GTX260 are high end cards and mainly what I said was that ultra cards like the GTX295 or 4870x2 are overkill and unrealistic. I never said they didn't exist or something! Just that %99.99 of people have no use for such ultra high end cards.
I said newegg is a great site, with great products and reader reviews. I said I used to live out in the boonies and I bought everything online. Now I live and work beside a great computer store and I said "I would never buy online" I never said buying online wasn't great for some people.
I did say Crystallizer may help bad MP3's sound better, but I also said "I don't use it because my MP3's are all LAME 192 and better or FLAC."
So this guy hangs on my every word and then takes it out of context and replies with rude words. He thinks that because I have it in my year old computer that I think its the best. I made a video about MY computer and what I happened to have in it. I wasn't saying this is the best, build the exact same machine as me. It was a point of guidance and I wanted to show that you don't have to spend over $1000 to have a really decent machine today. thats all it was. Then he comes in "your PC is shit, you don't know anything about PC's" and all this kinda of thing.
I've got over 200 videos on YT, mostly of old school consoles as I collect them. I make my videos for my subcribers. I'm an extremely kind person and I try to help as many of my viewers as I can.
I'm open minded on all hardware. I have no side be it Intel or AMD, NVidia or ATi. They all have great products to meet someones needs or budget! I've built everything from Core i7 systems, to small 780G based boxes for HTPC. I'm a big fan of Phenom IIs but at the time I am running a P45/E8400 setup.
I've never said anything cruel or put down this user on here. But he emails me telling me to "shut up" and that I don't know anything about computers and to stop making videos about them.
I've been into computers since DOS, my first computer was an 80286 and I've been building them since!
There is ALWAYS new stuff to learn and I hope I can on places like this.
Once again, its great you have upgraded the abilities of the Realtek onboard audio. This should be great news for many. I'm no Creative fanboy, believe me I had my share of problems with the X-Fi on NForce chipsets and it was a turn off. I've admitted many times there are better cards for SQL. But I'm not going to take out the card now so this is not usefull to me at the time. But it maybe later!
