Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro for €126.75 (about $185), a good deal?

post #1 of 5

The title says it all.

 

It's second hand, comes with everything and is in a used, but fully functional state. Price includes shipping to the Netherlands

 

Is it a good deal? I want to know it before friday, because this saturday the system will probably be sold to another person.

 

I searched on Ebay and Amazon, but I couldn't find it cheaper (including shipping to the Netherlands).

It's a nice card, but why that one? Do you really require the console and the added bundle? Because for less money you can get a X-Fi Titanium HD, which is a superior card, even if geared towards stereo output.

as you are from the netherlands also , i have a Asus STX essence pci-e card.

i can sell you that for a very modest price of 75 euro's. it is in pristine condition.

So what about the Asus STX Essence in comparison with the Creative X-Fi Titanium HD? Which is better for music+gaming needs (mainly music)?

 

Oh and don't forget about windows 7 compatibility! I guess there's no problems there, but if so: please tell me!

For gaming and music, the X-Fi Titanium HD is the best performer. Again, this is all IMO. And there are no compatibility issues.

 

But 75€ for a Xonar Essence STX is a nice deal :) At retail price, I would never get one, but for that price, perhaps.
