    This card uses Via's superb Envy24 HT (not to be confused with the cheaper and inferior HT-S) sound processor. MSRP is $129.99, but after searching high and low, I found it on Amazon for under $50. Considering that most places sell it for $90-$120, it's a steal.

    Sorry, but I wouldn't go that far.

    You're right. I forgot to include proprietary Creative features like EAX. But it is definitely better at what I like to call "not crackling".

    Not even in the same class either. The gold tips are much nicer on the X-fi, compared to the colored tips on this card :s

    What part of the audio signal do the gold tips conduct? The answer will surprise you. Anyway, I'm editing my initial post. People are missing the mountain for the trees.
