Im considering getting a new soundcard, but im totally torn between an Auzentech X-FI Forte or an Asus Xonar Dx. Is the Forte worth the extra AU$50? Also does the X-FI Forte pop and crackle when combined with XP 64bit and 4GB of RAM? Also I will be probably getting a logitech X-540. Plz post what u thimk or suggest... other soundcard suggestions MUST be PCIe. Thanks.
