Get this one, but hurry. It's got a HUGE rebate on it. Look at the wonderful reviews. So freakishly good.

Anything made by Sound Blaster is good, but that one is AWESOME.

Yeah, that X-fi's worth the money

It makes MP3's sound better, and allows for onboard support of Pro-Logic 2 etc I've heard. Well worth getting.

Its a shame its Newegg
