Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Titanium - Should I?

Hey guys, Matt here.

If anyone has been creeping about, I've been having issues with sound configuration in Windows 7.

After a bit of digging, I've found a fix... Buy a new damn card.

Just want all you forum goers opinions, Is this card all that it is cracked up to be?

Links to Reviews and even first hand experience intel much appreciated

Here is the link I located to see if it was compatable with my Windows 7 x64-bit system,

it's a good card but the x-fi drivers have been a source of issues for many lately.

It's a good card and I have no driver isues! Thank you very much.

My mini review here.... My thoughts on Creative’s X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro - Vista Forums

I absolutely love the sound quality of this card! Listening some jazz on it right now. Stunning.

Yeah but if you look closely, those are mostly for the older X-Fi cards - the ones Daniel K tried to fix and got threatened by Creative Labs...

At any rate, I'd be lying if I said there weren't any driver problems some X-Fi cards, so...

I picked this card up a few days ago and have had no issues with it other than trying to use dd live which causes windows to sit at shutdown screen indefinitely.
It puts out some great sound and BB might still have them for only $99(fatal1ty version)

I have an Xfi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion installed and NO problems.

Considering the number of people that have SoundBlaster's installed, compared to those that are having problems (with current production models - not older models that may or may not be compatible) it's very few.

I had an older SB Audigy 2 Platinum EX die and agonized over buying a new SB and because of problems (back in the Vista days) on the Dell Users Forum with the (Dell OEM model) Xfi's I installed an HT Omega Striker 7.1 sound card and it worked perfectly in Vista 64 bit and when I installed Win 7 64 bit they had a new driver that also worked without problems. However I missed the Hardware MIDI Synths that SoundBlaster has and finally went for the SoundBlaster and after two months it's working flawlessly.

LFB, Thank you, you just saved me a few hundred bucks.

I was going to purchase that card TOMORROW. After reading that, I think I'll wait.

Again, Thank you very much. LFB's Rep + + + + +
