Will this card work in any mobo or just the rampage series?
Depends if its a PCI-E card or not. The supreme FX that came with my old P5N32-E SLI board would only work in the mobo it came with as the slot was a x1 PCI-E slot but its like it was the wrong way round on the mobo and it wouldnt fit a normal x1 or x16 slot
That card will not work on any mobo, it will only work on Asus ROG mobo's (striker, rampage, crosshair) it isn't a soundcard, more of an extension to the onboard audio on the mobo.
I am thinking about getting the Crosshair III Formula which also comes with this card.
It is any good, or should I look to be getting a seperate card like the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio 7.1 Sound Card?
The Xtreme Audio is certainly not worth getting if you have a SupremeFX. Neither are actually X-Fi cards, the Xtreme Audio is just a repackaged Audigy card. The Xtreme Gamer would be a much better buy, and will certainly be better than the SupremeFX. I would try the SupremeFX first, see if you like it.
Not fair that it isnt being included with the Rampage III Extreme, I could have skipped buying an X-Fi then
as stated, it sa daughter board so will most likely only work with the boards that can use it. Its better than normal onboard, but not as good as a decent x-fi or a xonar.
The port on the mobo is at least the right way round though, since i use mine for a 2 port sata raid card
