that said - he could just be one of those people who would morgage his house for a pc with enough power to fold 50 F@H units in the blink of an eye & bench it a few times, then do something insanely pedestrian with it & use it to only check email.


P.S

Im not delibrately taking a stab at those kind of people, I just dont understand their way of thinking.

I'm one of those people. I don't game much, really.

It's like owning a really high horsepower/very fast car. You aren't going to be driving it flat-out everywhere you go, but it's there when you want or need it.

Depends where you live - There are such places in the world where there are no speed limits on the roads so owning a stupidly fast car there might actually seem normal. the power might be there when you want it - but seriously, how long is it before you either sell/giveaway/demote it to backup machine before you actually able to use even 80% of its potential?? Because if you got money, your gonna hop on the next big thing that comes up no mattar what & it just goes to waste.

but obviously if you have a ton of money then you wont have to worry about 2moro,

I don't really have a ton of money either. I just save up for these things. I'd already have a 965XE i7 if I was rich. It's not about money, or practicality. It's about the pure desire of owning it. I like having a fast machine, even if it goes under utilized 95% of the time, it's there for the 5% I need the speed.

I used to be the same with my cars as well, but I found the computer to be a little more manageable from a money perspective. If I made enough money, I'd have a 1000+HP daily driver for a car as well. Again, practicality be damned, it's a passion for speed and or power.

I agree, I'm about the same in both aspects - the full extent of my rig's power is rarely used . . . but, when I need it, it's nice to have that processing power there for any aspect - be it CPU intensive, GPU intensive, APU intensive, etc.

Same goes for my cars . . . although, I must say as well that if I did have something more powerful, I'd probably be in trouble a lot more than I already am :p

I have to ask.. does "X-Fi support syndicate" actually translate to: Support for Creative X-Fi users that are/being driven mentally insane by crap official support and drivers :p

No.

There would be no TechPowerUp forums if everything you buy works perfectly or you know how to use everything perfectly.

Don't get into Creative bashing here.

Theres no Creative bashing, just common knowledge Creative support sucks, so in a comical way to make things more light hearted I asked what I did, in the way I did. Now go take that stick out your butt :p

Which is what I asked you not to post on. This thread is not about bitching at Creative. If you have the urge to bitch, find the nearest woman. Preferably over 50 years of age.

Ket, TBH, sarcasm doesn't really translate too well on the i-nets . . . and we know you've been overly vocal in your stance against Creative in the past - I can't blame bta for interpreting your post as the first step towards open bashing . . .

but, in all seriousness, I had started this thread (and mentioned numerous times in it) to offer support for issues because of how poor Creative's tech and customer support was. Occasionally I'll fire a question at their tech support just to see what their answer will be, and I'm usually given a long response that begins a process of running in circles . . . and their forums are full of creative bashers, so legitimate problems become overlooked.

Biggest reason why Creative bashing goes untolerated here . . . this thread is meant to offer help to users who have legitimate issues and are trying to resolve them.

Like I said, just figured I would try to bring a smile to some poor sods otherwise probably dismal day fighting a Creative problem. We all know how it sucks troubleshooting something theres seemingly no answer for.

If it's the Xtreme Gamer Fatality PCI then no, I'm going off my experience. I had random issues were it would just change the channel output from 5.1 to 2.1. I tried to get creative to help me with it but that was a lost cause. This could have been an issue caused by Vista but I couldn't take it anymore and I prefered my onboard sound since it didn't change channels on me. I bought the card shortly after it came out and used it for about 4 months so possible a driver corrected this issue.

If it's the Titanium Pro Fatality PCI-E then hell yes, again going off my experience. I loved this card even though I traded for a 4850 I never used. Never had issues with it and couldn't get over how well this card worked in Win 7 with beta drivers. I've highly debated getting another one but that Azuntech X-fi Forte is only 10 bucks more right now on the egg(US) so I've really been eyeing that one.
yeah I'm also very pissed with mine from 5.1 to 2.1 not exactly 2.1. vista still says 5.1 but it's either centre sound will go the right side or rear would completely disappear or front left/right would go to centre. had to reboot just to temp fix the sound. but after installing danielK's support pack 2.0 it seems that it has gone away.. still need a few more days to confirm that.

connection to speakers are analog. I tried optical. same problems. optical as in "encoder DTS connect" rather than set SPDIF as default.

but i did realized that I had that problem when I am using CMSS. when i disabled everything. it doesnt occur cuz the rear and centre isnt used for music.

the channel shift is during music and video.
