Okay, there was a pricing error on Amazon, they (a seller) priced it at $24 instead of $240 (all are at $240 or above on Amazon) so I snatched it up.

202 watts max, and 101 watts rms. 2.1 system

Got good reviews: http://www.pcmag.com...,2396881,00.asp

Anyone have it? How good is it?

For a computer system, those seem like very respectable numbers, and especially @ $24! ($27 shipped)

Yep, price screwup.

Went up to $270 + S/H after I bought it for $27 lmao.

EDIT:

Also bought this: Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Go! Pro USB Audio System with THX SB1290

http://www.amazon.co...TF8&me=&seller=

Should that improve sound quality over my onboard sound? Does it actually unload the audio from the CPU like dedicated sound cards do? (it says it does).

Do sound cards actually help a whole lot in the quality and performance area? (gaming wise atleast)

QUOTE
In addition to enriching your gaming audio, using the X-Fi Go! Pro will boost your PC's gaming performance as a whole. By functioning as a dedicated sound unit, the card frees up resources that would otherwise be tied up in audio processes. This allows your PC to dedicate more of its processing power towards other tasks, like graphical and AI processing. The result is a gaming experience free of hiccups and slowdowns.


So is it actually a soundcard that uses USB? It'll be nice to have EAX and whatnot too.
