I have a Xtrememusic now, but I want the drive bay and the red light.

This one seems to have the red light, but no drive bay

And this one seems to have the drive bay, pretty sure it has the red light, but its 50 dollars extra.



Im thinkin i should get the second one then.

Someone help, thanks.

We are very sorry, the page that you requested does not exist.
Newegg.com has been undergoing many improvements recently, which required some pages to be moved.
Don't think anyone can help you seeing as the page you linked to has moved... Maybe you could tell us the specific product name.(nana2)

If you want the front Bay and the red light, you will need to get the Fatal1ty.

Btw, neither of the links work.

I would suggest that you go for the Platinum, the red light is pointless IMHO.

Its not pointless with a red/black setup. thats what i am aiming for...

Right, but both of the itesms are called "fatal1ty"
And I wasnt sure which one came with the drive bay.

The 2nd one is the one you want, that is the version with the front panel setup, and the red light :) Also 64MB of x-ram.

They had this one at the outpost.com for $100.00 after rebate or $120.00 at
Fry's about a week ago. The fatality fps that is.

well, i guess you could go for that, just you're paying ALOT more for pretty much the same hardware plus a red light.

Read some of the threads their are already posted on soundcards. I prefer the Fatality cuz its 64XRam, has the red light and If your an nforce user, don't bother with platium.

I keep in mind some people are very wealthy. They don't need to wait for sales or outdated hardware to be reduced, but I've noticed some good sales on the X-Fi fatality fps. I just missed the $99.00 after rebate one and then seen it in the FRys store add for $120.00 though now they look like they're back up to $170.00. I don't mean to sound too redundant.

What red light? I have had the card for over a year and didn't notice any red light.

on the side of the card facing outward to the outside of the case door, away from your motherboard.

I know, I saw it at newegg for 120 I think last week. I wish I had bought it, but i had heard issues of it having delay for guitar recording and stuff. Im not exactly wealthy either...i just like nice stuff :captnkill:

Well, you can get that bay box seperately from creative.. i believe it was $80.

Also, the X-Fi's aren't even considered for any real audio work outside of the gaming world.. Much better off sinking your money into a external audio interface (USB2.0 or firewire).. or getting a music production orientated PCI card.

Yeah, the X-fi series is for gaming. Creative has another line for the professional.
