i just ordered X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro Series mainly for FH and FH2 to see if the sound is really gonna get good, i got good 5.1 speakers so speakers are fine.
Anyone else have X-Fi that has seen major sound improvement in FH1????
lol i spent over $1400 just for fh1 and fh2 :0 and it was worth it!!!!!!!
If you're gonna spend $1400 on FH1/FH2, it should be placed in an unmarked brown paper bag outside Lobo's doorstep.:rolleyes:
Seriously though I so wish I could afford any sort of surround sound.:bawl:
lol nah i did not spend that much for sound. I bought a whole new high end computer 2-3 months ago and now i bought a new 320gb HDD and that sound card.
BTW its my work money :)
When the X-Fi comes, I would return it because you don't need the X-ram/V-ram/my-ram, since it really depends if the devellopers took advantage of the software which, for FH2's sake, I don't think they did but I'm sure if you asked them or they found this thread they would answer if it's a yes or a no. With your new "high end" computer I don't think it would be necessary.
Just don't get the bottom of the line as it takes no load of the CPU. I mean for the 100$ difference, at least here in Canada, you can get 1GB of DDR400 or be on your way for a Gig of DDR2.
yeah, i feel you there. I just got a whole new rig, 900 dollars invested in FH2. This better be the best damn game in the universe, in the meantime i'm playing FH1 and it plays like a CHAMP!
For the first time in my life i'm actually able to load an FH1 map with still time left on the counter to spawn in, the game hadn't even started! And lag? Hell NO!
Even if FH2 is the best game like i assume it will be, i'll still be well set for gaming in the future with this rig. Now i have 30 dollars left though....that's the downside.
lol i already bought it :P and i love it! why the hell not? its awsome :)
EDIT: only thing i dont like is in bf2 the gun sounds are not laud but everything minor is. me walking is lauder than gun shots ffs! every other game is all good.
