Great! I was wondering if a PCI-E would be made. I just may have found my new sound card finally.

PCI is fast enought for sound, why is everyone so excited about PCI-E sound cards? is not like it will make any real difference.

I'm proud of my X-Fi Elite Pro

So no need for a PCI Express one for me

But I hope they gonna still support the older ones

All Xram has ever equaled is pure hype, they have never nor will they most likely ever utilize it.....good for epeen and an excuse to charge extra money for a non-exsistent feature basically
