I've been using an X-Fi XtremeMusic for ages now. I'm starting to get an upgrade itch, not sure if it's justified. The incompatibility with HD Audio front panel connectors has always been a pet peeve, and the thing feels kind of obsolete now anyway, along with EAX.
(I'm using a pair of DT770s fwiw.)
Should I look into an ASUS card, or just keep the X-Fi?
