How much of an improvement really is it?
I hear its great in Battlefield 2, that true?
Yes, its THAT good. Improvement? Compared to what? Onboard Sound? Think Integrated Graphics and GeForce 7800GTX. Compared to another Sound Card? Think any other videocard, and compare it to the Geforce 7800GTX...0_0...
Its best in Battlefield 2, yes. BF2, and one or two other games, have 128 different sounds in the game. Only the X-Fi lets you hear all of them. From the sound of the grass crunching under your feet, to the sound of the F-15 pilot roaring 5 meters over your head.
Even a $50 Speaker system, or headset, will give you everything the sound card has to offer.
