  1. so boxing day is coming up and i have recently realized ive been bottle necking my shure srh840's and my z-2300's. im looking at the Creative Labs X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Fatality Sound Card and the Asus Xonar DX 7.1 Channel PCI Express Sound Card. WHICH IS better? i play games and listen to a lot of music.
    any help would be appreciated.
    thank you in advance.

    i think you'll be happy with either card... the Xonar series is one of the best X-Fi alternatives other than the supreme FX cards. i have a X-Fi titanium and it's great for gaming, but i've also used Xonar cards in a few customer builds and they too sound fantastic. i guess it boils down to features and software. creative cards typically ship with a lot of bloatware, which doesn't need to be installed, but there is some decent control software in there as well. both cards will sound great with either games or music when connected to a good sound system.
