So that's your definition of "current"? Games that came out 5 years ago that nobody plays? Again, stupid. The logic behind that statement: making you look dumb. I knew you could not produce anything and you proved it. Actually, it does. It was in response to your statment about "my beliefs". ASUS winning awards is not a "belief" of mine, it's publicly known fact. Poor choice of words on your part. Outdated CPU emulated EAX? EAX itself is outdated! So is the notion of hardware accelerated audio! And why would you build a gaming computer only to connect a PS3 to it? Greater performance, sound quality, sound effect? Maybe if the game uses EAX... which most don't. And at least the STX has a headphone amp, cheap or not. It can power 600 ohm Beyerdynamics without complaints. I never said you said the Titanium HD's amp was better than the STX's. I said you were comparing, there's a difference. A very small percentage, yes. Again, most games these days do not use any form of hardware accelerated sound. Again, UT3 is not a modern or popular or current game. Is this your desperate example? Next time you want to talk about games, remember your own choice of words (i.e. current). Again, you have a misunderstanding on how each card handles resources. There's no point in me trying to explain it to you again. You're obviously not capable of understanding that concept. A majority of your posts are meaningless because you have no idea what you're talking about. Doesn't matter if I choice edit or not, you're still lacking basics when it comes to sound hardware on the PC. Titanium HD does not have "an average amp", it has no amp. You finished yet?
