    Go with the E-Clario , yes its more then you or I want to pay but I figure going PCIE 1x and a clario will make this card as future proof as its going to get from todays viewpoint .

    What do you want/use as speakers or headphones with it? I guess they must be quite nice to make the sound card sound better.

    I will be using some 2.1 Klipsch promedia speakers with this card. Have high hopes for the E Clario . I will have it by monday night so we will see if it lives up to the hype all new egg reveiws have given this card , we shall see.

    Only problem with xfi, you might not have it I do though, is with xram. Some games dont like it and it causes crash, must be disabled for stability.
    You need to do it contact me, I have a regfile to disable it.

    apreciate the link , good reading but after 5 pages I gave up . Looking for a place to buy a opamp . Auzentechs site is offering them at a high price , but seeing I don't know where else to buy , I might as well just order one.

    Looks like what I need , a updated version of the LM4562 with a adaptor so its plug and play .. I will post back when the order comes in
    EDIT
    Crap its on back order

    I think you will be happy with it. Sure its expensive , but IMO worth it . Great tech suppoet too ! I got a responce from HT Omega in 24 hrs . Thats rare these days , and the Guy didn't speak broken english ! LOL Gotta love that !
    Cant wait till I get my new opamp , heard many good things on this opamp. I will post back when it arrives .
    The E Clario sound awesome in games , I played UT2004, mass effect, tomb raider , and forged alliance . All sound awesome , Music is clear and sharp. Beats out any XFI I ever heard and the clarios drivers are stable , take up a lot less resorces then creatives bloatware drivers.

    As far a Asus cards , I suggest doing some research . They use their own software drivers and my search turned up many users not real happy with Asus . I tryed one of their pci versions of the Asus Xonar , and I was not real impressed . Sounded muddy . But to be fair , it was a open box version at new egg so that could have been a problem

    It's the DS. Not the fanciest, but it has user-replaceable op-amps, and really sounds very good.
