    I just kinda don't like how the guy is really just doing it all "for the money."
    But then again nowadays, who the hell isn't?

    The ONLY differences between the Fata1ty and the Platinum is the Fata1ty has 64 megs onboard and a gay Fata1ty LED. Is it worth the ~$100 more...IMO HECK no! It has the same audio specs that the basic X-fi has, the only board that uses different hardware is the elite pro, all the others will have the exact same sound quality. The 64 megs of RAM is supposed to help gaming performance, it would be an interesting benchmark comparison if one was made.

    The onboard memory will work as a kind of buffer wayyyyy in the future it might become some use, but now, its useless!

    I have an X-Fi Elite Pro. It has been a major pain in the backside. BUT the 64 megs and X-fi WHEN THEY ARE WORKING(!!!) are great. Sound is awesome, games are great - ASIO drivers are great.

    I when I had it in my last PC, there was a noticable performance difference in Doom 3 with and without the card. It's not a 'future' thing - it does help in games now.

    Still not worth the trouble it has coused me in a million years.
