Dude, what're you talking about. The SB Live is about the best card in that price range. And what do you think, he's made of gold? He has a $1000 budget. No one has a X-Fi in a $1000 budget...

To both you and Pzero; Not a hot power supply? Antec, 500W, and 34A. Stop complaining.

And a 148 has a higher chance of getting to 2.9 or 3.0Ghz than a 144...besides, they don't sell 144s and 146s on Newegg.

Here is an X-Fi XtremeMusic for $104:

And I'll say it again:
The SB Live sucks.
Also, I will be selling my 146 here within the next day, and it does 2.9GHz stable. Even if I didn't, you can get it here:

The link in your post with your recommendations says it's an Aspire PSU, and those suck. End of story:

Here is a much better PSU for the same price:

Its not an Antec you choose, its an Aspire PSU.

Newegg is not the only site out there, if you didnt know.

Oh yea, a $100+ sound card compared to a $34 sound card. And the SB Live is one of the best sound cards in its price range.

What makes you think someone wants to buy a used 146? Your PSU isn't haven't too much luck.

As for the Aspire PSU, ****, how did I not notice that. Yea, this would be the other option. I have the exact same one and its 100% solid.

Well for one, they are in high demand, and in short stock, and getting one that is guaranteed to overclock past the FX-57 for under $200 is a pretty good deal if you ask me. The SB live uses eax 3.0, all games I know of use eax 4.0, or in the case of bf2 and fear, 5.0 (which is only on the x-fi). If the X-fi is to much, then AT LEAST get an audigy2 zs, it can be had for under $70 and it is TONS better than the SB live. Also that forton is the one I linked to as well, it seems to be a really good one for the price.

No, a SB Live is too much since he's already over his budget.

Wrong, a $10 sound card won't be much of an improvement. A SB LIVE is a very nice card, property of a lot of people on this forum, and generally regarded as a quality card.
