I might pick up an Extrememusic at Best Buy...I'm not convinced XRAM is useful for anything yet and I have no need for a front panel.

Who knows .. the next gen games might take advantage of the extra RAM though. so its better to be equipped just in case IMO.
IF you have the dough of course!

Well, I've read some X-Fi reviews and I'm pretty sure I'm going to hold off for a while. Apparently the sound quality is exactly the same as the Audigy's (unless you use the 24-bit Crystalizer). Maybe I'll get one in a year or so but for now my Audigy 2 ZS is just fine. Too bad the software is bloated and horrible though.

The 3D sound if you use 2 speakers or headphones is much better though. In BF2, the X-Fi mode is also much better than the regular EAX mode. In doom 3, I'm not as sure. It's hard to tell b/c the new mode added in 1.3 has so much reverb (I think is the word) it's kind of hard to tell.

Thats why I don't use the software Drivers, and console. Thats it. Very simple interface.
