    EDIT: Hmm, they seem to be renamed Audigy cards.

    eBuyer ^^

    I wonder if x-fi atully is ANY good, I bet that fancy 'liquid metal spinning around to make x-fi logo' is the only thing that uses x-fi so called million transistors :/

    Mine has a front panel my case front panel cannot fit with, a shiny red light and 64mb magic ram(xram, its magic because it dosent do anything, at all. yup.)

    That bar graph is shocking. They're getting worse !

    Quite often I have an urge to throw every Creative product I own out of the nearest window. Usually when I read those bloody PR lines. I manage to resist as I'm skint at the mo and couldn't face a lawsuit for braining somebody with a soundcard.

    If I hear one more "With this soundcard, music sounds just like being there at the original recording. Only better. Imagine having the hearing of a dolphin ! That's how good this card is. And you don't even need to be underwater ! The Creative X-fi Bottlenose edition..." type quote, the subwoofer gets it !
