Boost your desktop's audio performance with a sound card from one of the premier names in computer audio—Creative Labs. The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic is designed to enhance your digital music collection. The X-Fi 24-bit Crystalizer improves both low and high frequencies giving you smoother, cleaner sound.

The card's audio processor, with help from Creative's CMSS-3D technology, is able to remix your stereo audio into surround sound—even through stereo headphones. These two features also team together to "SuperRip" your CDs, boosting the fidelity of your digital music above that of low-quality MP3 files.

The XtremeMusic card may be geared for music, but gaming and movies benefit from Creative's audio technology know-how, too. The completely re-engineered game audio processing engine helps free up demands on your PC's processor increasing overall performance. For enjoying your favorite DVDs, the card is THX certified and can handle decoding DTS-ES and Dolby Digital EX duties.

This is an older version of the Extreme Gamer card. It is no longer listed on the Creative website and is no longer supported. From what I gather from web searches, there are three model numbers of the Extreme Gamer(at least) and this is the oldest one. I also read that this card was put into certain computers exclusively (Alienware/Dell) and was not intended to be sold as a stand alone card.I haven't gotten the card to work on Windows 7 64 bit yet. I am still trying. I got the blue screen of de ... ath with the drivers that Creative has on it's website for the Extreme Gamer for Win 7. I am trying Vista drivers in compatibility mode next. I will update if I get it working. More >

Glad Creative finally got out of that proprietary 7.1 surround sound audio cord used with their Audigy products. Looking for a replacement cord for a perfectly good sound card and speaker system was a mess .
