Hey, basically I'm looking at investing into a soundcard now. The two cards I'm looking at are: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS Edition - Retail (SC-032-CL) Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Elite Pro - Retail (SC-031-CL) This is mainly due to their controllers and combined spec'. The first question is: Regarding the Fatal1ty FPS I/O device, the front is black. I currently have a Lian-Li PC-007 case with brushed aluminium in silver and a black I/O would clash horribley. Is it possible to get the I/O in silver or would I be looking at modding a spare bezel? Secondly, regarding the Elite Pro controller. Would I be able to plug my guitar in via an amp lead? Also, is the possible with either of the controllers? If I can't plug my guitar in, I won't be interested in either of these cards because I'll have no real need for the controllers/adapters. So which sound card would you recommend me? I use my computer for gaming, music and DVDs. Cheers.
