Few weeks ago to check something i had to take out my x-fi and use integrated soundcard for few hours.... just anything i tried i instantly heard a difference for worse. Also from time to time when i come back to f.e.a.r. (the only good f.e.a.r. which is the first one) or to crysis 1 i want to have EAX effects as they make huuuuge difference. I'm really afraid that one day this wonderful card will break because of age but for now i'm extremely happy using it and enjoy its sound quality and options it offers.Just a question : Why does people still buy sound cards when the onboard ones are really good now? We are not in the 90's anymore.
BTW: what sound card anyone would suggest at the moment which wouldn't be a downgrade from x-fi titanium and wouldn't cost more than 300 euros. I'm asking out of curiosity, not because of actual need to replace titanium as this one still works good.
Also: trend for headsets with their horrible audio processors and software post-effects to emulate 7.1 is laughable to me.
