    I will NOT be buying another CL card. Just to have it be unsapported in a yr and half.

    I'm probably done with them as well. Actually Audigy 2 has been a solid little card and Creative seems to finally have their drivers straightened out. But I'm definitely going to look at alternatives when it comes time to buy.

    WTF?! Games don't even use EAX 4, which is on my Audigy 2 ZX and now we have EAX 5? So my card is going to be unsupported in 3 months!? Arrgghhh, Damn you creative!

    Lets hope this time it's actually new hardware and not another fluffed up revamp.

    don't worry, who said eax3 is unsupported still?

    it'll be all good, i'm really looking towards increased gaming performance, creative cards handle gaming really well

    Those kX people should just drop out of making drivers and write an alternate environmental audio standard. Maybe it'll actually sound good too.

    I have refused to buy a creative card since they screwed Aureal and put them out of buisness with bogus lawsuits. A3D was, and still is in many ways, light years ahead of EAX.

    Who can ever forget the first time they played Half-Life in A3D and had the hairs on the back of their neck standup because they heard a monster coming up from behind? EAX has never given me that same sort of experiance.

    EAX sucks. Creative sux... I wish they would go out of business. My Fortissimo III sounds better- make more cards like that.
