Good card 05/03/2008
Good improvement over motherboard sound. It's important to say that the best results I've experienced are in movies and music. Movies play brilliantly, and the seperation of tones and instruments in music is very cool. It also solved a # of compatability issues in games, as well as improveing performance and sound quality. On average (not always) I was able to increase my resolution a whole notch whilst having the same FPS as I did in mobo sound. Worth the price with $50 rebate.
Simply put, I don't think this card is for normal consumers. Sound quality is better, but if you're just a gamer you don't need this. If you're into movies, music, and maybe audio creation then hell yeah. Otherwise a less expensive hardware based card will suffice.
The free shipping deal was awesome, arrived in 3 days. Newegg has won me as a customer. Overall I think this was worth my money at $80, but definatly more than i need at retail price. Standard X-treme gamer would have sufficed.
