OK, I've been looking at two options to upgrade my sound and I'm looking for some opinions. First is the Creative Xmod. Best Buy is selling this for $40. That's about $30-40 less than anyone else....which is why I'm considering it. I know that it is pretty much just for using with MP3's. I guess it doesn't do much for gaming. Now I don't plan on hooking my laptop up to other speakers, just headphones. The other option is the X-fi laptop version. I can get that through Dell for $64, so not much more. Now here is what I want. I listen to music, I play games. I rarely if ever watch movies on it. I'm not a high end person, I just want something that will improve the quality(I have a set of HD Sennheisers that I use for headphones, nothing high end). Are neither of these options going to improve the gaming sounds? If not, I'll obviously go with the cheaper option. Is there any real advantage of one over the other?
