Excerpt: Of all the sound cards on the market, one of the most popular ones is the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer. There are hundreds of user reviews on it and the vast majority of them are very positive. It lost a few points with people who upgraded their PCs to Windows 7 or already had the OS when they bought the card. Those issues were pretty quickly worked through though and now they love their sound cards.
Pros: This card has API support for both gaming and home theaters.
Cons: The XtremeGamer only has 3.5mm I/O ports, which limits potential.
Conclusion: Overall I highly doubt there is any better card for 70$ USD. They have really succeeded in making a cheaper card but still be able to keep the good features the X-fi series hold. It does not have X-ram or front panel, but how often do you even use those? The front panel is more built on to the card so you have the same features on the card instead of an extra panel. You can buy a remote for this card also in case you got some need for it.
Excerpt: De laatste grote vernieuwingen qua PC-geluid, de HD Audio standaard en de Creative X-Fi geluidskaarten, liggen al enige tijd achter ons. Toch is het tijd om weer eens aandacht te besteden aan geluid voor de PC. Windows Vista heeft namelijk het een en ander veranderd, waar lang niet iedereen zich van bewust is.
