Simple, Razer is for gaming. I found that Razer sound card + Razer headphones connected via HD-DAI is great for positioning player in games like CS 1.6. (This alone sold me) X-Fi pro I use for movies + some games are better played on X-Fi then razer due to the X-Fi factor. If the razer would of came out first I wouldn’t have bought the X-fi, but at the time I was board with my current equipment and $200 for headphones (that cost $200 alone) plus razer card together for $200 was looking like a great deal so I went for it. I also have a pair of HD555's from Sennheiser.They are very very comfortable great for movies!

how do you use the 2 cards at the different times?

Looks like a nice roomy setup you have there! I'd love to have a desk setup like that for some more real estate.

precisely, no point in building a 1500 dollar computer if you're not willing to spend 15 minutes routing your cables. i usually route them out the other side and zip tie them to the inside of the case.
