I"m sorry, I love Abit and Creative, but just becuase their putting a well respected gamers alias on the box means they charge out the ass...no way in hell would I buy a product as such. It's a perfect example of how company's make so much more money on a "brand" name.

Haha, that's funny. I saw FPS and thought, right, first person shooter. Eh? Is it some kind of a game developed with Creative, Abit and Mr. Fatality?
Oh. It's a sound card. What else could FPS stand for? Frames per second...hmm. It must be a mistake.

...wait a second, a sound card... designed especially for first person shooters...? You cant be serious.

Their point is that it has very low cpu dependancy, so you get the most from your gear, which is true yes, but it still won't make you shoot straighter

what nobody's mentioned yet, and should be quoted bluntly on all x-fi boxes, is that:

Quote:
My Ace of Base collection...has...a notably better sound.
C'mon, you hearing that cat? Ace of Base. Better sound. How can you not jam to Happy Nation or The Sign with your old onboard non-X-Fi sound system?

Screw the fatal1ty brand name...just have Jonas Berggren sign off on these cards and they will sell.

No lie.
