-------The build quality of the AE-5 is really questionable even the software is buggy to the point where the reviews are so bad it's a real gamble to buy one.
Alot of complaints about the Microphone jack and the software resetting with every reboot of windows. Not sure if the AE-9 will be any better.
Can't hurt to try. I've had good results using PCI based X-Fi cards in newer computers that still have regular PCI slots. I've mainly used PCI XtremeMusic Cards. Looks like your card is a PCI XtremeGamer card. You should be able to get the latest drivers for it here: https://support.creative.com/Produc...laster&prodID=15853&prodName=X-Fi XtremeGamerIs it worth me popping in a SB X-Fi SB0770 over my current integrated Realtek 892??
I picked one up for $10 on ebay etc
I have a Soundblaster Z on Windows 10. I originally had the card on an X58 system and when it kicked the bucket in December I moved it to a Haswell. The driver never gave and still has not given me any issues whatsoever.creative has win10 drivers for cards that launched during win 7???? You are lucky if you even get working drivers for win10 for cards that launched during win8. On the other hand just about and other chip manufacture has kept up with microsoft OS's. last time i checked my core2duo's sound still works with the mediatek/realtek drivers and win10.
That shade at EVGAThe AE-9 is a card for the system builder who wants their battlestation chassis to be loaded with the best of the best. It's a true PCIe beast and not a USB device disguised as an internal card.
I wonder what that means. Is there another card recently released that was basically a USB device on a PCIe board?...It's a true PCIe beast and not a USB device disguised as an internal card.
The reference: EVGA NU Audio for US$200 connects to PCIe via a USB controller.I wonder what that means. Is there another card recently released that was basically a USB device on a PCIe board?
Interesting "view point". Creative just released brand new drivers for my ~10 year old X-Fi Titanium HD today. Good luck getting that level of support from most other companies. Not even AMD or Nvidia release new drivers for cards that old.Creative Labs driver support has sucked the last few years. At least from my view point.
Hmm thanks ...just saw they finally released new drivers for the AE-5
Can anyone translate?I want that expensive EVGA card..and you can change the opamps their socketed and shit. and whopping claimed 117db sucker lol.
but no Id rather have a real audio and amp...try to kill some Valves...You need one of those Mississippi Marshall's in you're life etc lol.
go higher and step them and kill them lol...Russia can only really handle the Voltage better right now again....
we're not making shit anymore...china is junk still...JJ declined even further and good Luck getting Plate current matching...
We have to talk to the Soviet's lol
Even mid-range boards, say US$150 to US$200, do a pretty good job. I'm sure there's the odd bad example too.I for one am glad there are still sound cards. Unless you buy the highest end board, onboard audio still sucks. It's fine for a generic rig for your mom to browse email, but not for gaming or high end audio. It just isn't.
Get one of their USB parts. Those are actually updated. The Soundblaster Z is their current internal card, if that's what you really want.Speaking which i want to know if Creative Sound Blaster Titanium is better or Creative Sound Blaster Core3d is better.
By better i mean better then onboard solution.
Im getting a good deal on Soundblaster Titanium Fatality with front panel and just the Soundblaster Core3d bare card.Get one of their USB parts. Those are actually updated. The Soundblaster Z is their current internal card, if that's what you really want.
