My budget is very tight, being a student, and was only about 60 bucks up or so but I've decided to just splurge $130 and worry about the consequences later (I know, bad thinking, but I just can't make music with this card).
Thanks to some help here and elsewhere, I have narrowed down my choices.
These are the three I am considering:
M-Audio Audiophile 24/96
Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic
In the Soundblaster review I noticed someone said they had upgraded from the Audiophile to this one and it sounded better?
And anyways, the main point of this is that I'm not the most technically able person so I was wondering whether anyone would be able to point to the best of these three, or anyone have experience to compare one to the other?
