Umm what?

Why would they suffer? They are not getting the sound effects that come with the latest EAX versions, but instead a much more defined sound making the game seem even more realistic.

Why don't you just read the review and judge for yourself? The Asus D2X is nothing like other realtek audio processors, just because it doesn't support eax 3,4,5. There's more to sound than just EAX(and the card supports OpenAL so I don't see what you're getting at).
