so, should i back to my onboard sound card better ? it's Realtek ALC889A HD , should be better ? and also i will have the same driver problems with it ?

Going back to Realtek? You'd probably be much worse off for it, especially if your board happens to be a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P. (I have one and know it to be ALC889A-based, alongside having some godawful noisy output if headphone mode is enabled.)

 

Of course, that would require the X-Fi drivers to play along nicely. I'd start by trying this driver pack.

It depends on your motherboard and your shielding on your case HD cables going to the front Headphone jacks. I had an Xtremegamer and I don't use it. My Realtec 1150 with the amp on my ASRock Z87 with Purity sound is so good I would never use the Xtremegamer again.

I would upgrade if I were you to the Creative Soundblaster Z series or an Asus soundcard. However I found Windows 8 drivers for the Xtremegamer here:

First make sure the onboard Realtek is disabled in Bios. Also make sure the card is in right. I would take it out and out it back in again. Then try to reinstall the latest Creative drivers.

I would say to replace your current XtremeGamer with the Sound Blaster Z (SB1500), $85.

Do you use headphones or speakers with your computer?
