    Anybody still using x-fi xtreme gamer on windows 8.1 ????


    i'm curious if anybody is still using their x-fi xtremegamer soundcard on windows 8.1 OS.

    I really wanted to dump it and use my onboard realtek ALC892. But, the audio to my surprise was inferior. Odd that a card I acquired in 2008 still beats out a modern onboard sound solution even beyond the ALC892 iteration.

    thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    I find my RealTek sounds as good as the old SB Xfi sound card I had in my old PC.

    I'm not a stickler for PC audio, but I have a recording studio and picky about the studio sound.
