 It works. I've confirmed it myself. Just make sure "Play Stereo Mix using Digital Output" is checked and your "Speakers"/analog output is set as the default audio device in Windows. The former's PCI-Express, the latter's old-fashioned PCI. Naturally, I think you'll want the PCI-Express Titanium model, seeing as legacy PCI slots are getting phased out on modern motherboards.
 Funny you say that, because I thought Battlefield trying to somewhat copy CoD in scope as of the last several games was making Battlefield worse. They're two different styles of gameplay; each should stay where they belong instead of trying to make a bid for the other game's playerbase to the extent that they forget their original roots. Then again, maybe the competition is a good thing, considering the great Quake III Arena vs. Unreal Tournament rivalry of the last...
It works just like Dolby Headphone and THX/SBX do in software-mixed games, just with its own sound colorations.I'll probably throw it in whenever I decide how to rearchitect and rewrite the guide to minimize repeat questions like that. It was initially written as more of an information and misconception list than a how-to guide.That said, I've tried THX TSP Surround on my X-Fi Titanium HD (Entertainment Mode) and the Recon3D USB. I was not impressed. SBX doesn't sound any...
And I already thought I felt inadequate with my lone Gigabyte Windforce GTX 760 4 GB while everyone's packing a 780 or better, usually in SLI and watercooled and everything...   I did have a taste of two of those 760s in SLI for a short while, which had most benchmarks beating a single Titan.   All that does is make me want two 780 Ti or Titan Black cards in SLI to double up on THAT level of performance and ensure that the likes of maxed-out ACIV and Star Citizen will...
Gonna have to snag that one-week trial while it lasts! The good thing about Origin game time is that as long as you get it tied to your acvount and start downloading, you don't actually have to start the trial period until you're ready. Still got my 48 hours of Titanfall, at any rate.FPS-wise, it's mainly TOXIKK and UT4 that I'm looking forward to at the moment. The golden age of FPSs might just be coming back...
Too bad that brief experience with the beta will probably be all I play of Destiny. Promising game, just there's no PC version, no USB KB+M or PS Move support on PS3, let alone PS4, and I CANNOT stand aiming with gamepad twiddlysticks. There are many genres I like playing with gamepads, but FPS/TPSs are not at all on that list. As for Battlefield, I just hope the GameSpy server shutdown hasn't killed the community for all the good old games. VPN is still an option, but I...
What's this about a BF4 sale? Maybe if it's on deep discount, I'll give it a look with that naval warfare expansion-oh, wait, PS4 version only, never mind.   This did remind me to check for all the PS+ games I didn't download yet, though. Doing it through the PS3 causes me to miss stuff and it's kinda slow, though. Gotta get in the habit of checking through the Web site, which also lets me grab the PS4 freebies in case I get a PS4 later.
 No sound cards decode Dolby Digital or DTS on their S/PDIF inputs, to my knowledge. Certainly not any PCIe ones. If they get anything other than PCM on those inputs, all you'll hear is silence. Believe me, people have tried, even resorting to AC3Filter and other utilities. It either doesn't work or has such a hideous amount of latency that it's unsuitable for gaming. Right now, you just can't replace a Mixamp sort of device using a PC. It's probably that neither Dolby nor...
 I'll be blunt and say that the Clears are what the Browns should've been. The former is tactile; the latter is practically linear, and I don't like linear. Haven't tried ergo-Clears yet, but stock Clears make my fave non-buckling-spring switch thus far.
For all the talk this TAC thing gets, an HDMI input/video passthrough would be nice.   Also, we're making an awful lot of assumptions about its performance and DTS Headphone:X's performance in particular. While I'd like to test it out myself, I can't rule out the possibility that it might actually end up being worse.
