"Great card, not enough games harness it"4.5 starson by barrencpm4
Pros: awesome sound quality, cmss3d, x-ram
Cons: little x-ram support, price
Summary: I have always used Creative sound cards. Although the driver support and software was always lacking in the past releases, nothing could come close to the sound quality. This latest release cleaned up both the drivers and the software and added a few surprises. CMSS3D is AWESOME. I stopped using my 5.1 headphones and got a great set of 2.1 headphones instead, as CMSS3D sounds better than 5.1 surround. The sound quality of this card cannot be beat. The crystallizer cleans up my music, while x-ram helps keep my BF2 FPS up while adding more and better sounds. If more titles would take advantage of x-ram I would give this card a 10.
