My System Specs

Default New Sound card

I will buy a new sound card for movie/gaming (FPS: Css, BF2, TF2,etc..)

I don't want to spend too much money. I would like to spend less than 100$

I was thinking about the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme gamer. I can pricematch for 80$ on NCIX.

Tell me if it's a good choice.
You can also recommand another product

Thanks!

Less than a $100? Then get the HT Omega Striker or the HDA Xplosion.

Best two sub $100 cards

Thanks! I'll look around!

I'm also tempted to pay the price for a Auzentech X-Fi Prelude.. Worth it?

If you can afford the prelude by all means yes.
