Creative Sound Blaster Z PCIe 116dB SNR Gaming Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Beamforming Microphone

  • TOSLink Optical Input and Output
  • Sound Core 3D Processor
  • Beamforming Microphone
  • $99.99
  • $97.49

Pros:

-Works better then onboard sound processor.
-Bright red Light Emitting Diodes for Red lighting enthusiasts
- Had NO issues with drivers , nor did I have to disable onboard sound or delete drivers.

Cons:

-Card has issues initializing and being recognized after starting windows on occasion.

-Microphone port on the back panel will stop working occasionally

Other Thoughts:

You can't use Scout Mode if you have SBX pro Studio activated.
I have tried scout mode on a lot of games, and I cant tell any difference. I think this was a selling ploy for FPS gamers.
