Default X-Fi XtremeGamer only 50 bucks at Newegg

Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail

This is one of things I am getting for Christmas, only 50 bucks after 30 mail in rebate and free shipping. Rebate ends on Christmas. Compared to other places this is an incredible deal.

I'd still pass on that. Entertainment mode does wonders for music.

If I wasn't already waiting on 3 rebates and short on money for my new build I'd get this.

MIR...meh.

I've always wanted and X-FI, but I'll need new speakers to make good use of it. These 530's are like 3 years old.

huh?

Anyway, I bought it myself, I figure 50 bucks on this is worth it, especially after using integrated for years. As for the MIR, 'meh' is right, not a huge fan of them, but it is from Creative so I trust their rebate service has to be above average. I'm used to having rebates come in the mail every couple of weeks anyways. It's kind of funny receiving a check you forgot about, it's like finding money even though technically your just getting your money back. Although on my most recent check Hanns G did misspell my last name...
