    Titanium HD vs Xonar Phoebus.

    hello guys, i wanna buy a soundcard but i dont know which of them.

    I read so much problems here in the forum about the Phoebus (driver) but the hardware of the card is very good.
    The Creative SoundBlaster Titanium HD is a great soundcard too. Have same problems with driver...

    But where are the difference between them?
    I use this for Gaming DT 770 Pro (80 Ohm) i use only headphones for gaming.

    i live in germany (sorry 4 my bad english). Here in Germany there are no good tests for soundcards. I found this on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EK29FsabIyY under the video is a link for the titanium hd gameplay but without settings.

    If any of you has both sound cards and can give a conclusion to this?

    Both cards are pretty good (from a hardware perspective), but you are right Titaniums have driver issues when trying to using things like TS3 with an online MP. Your best bet is to wait for the Phoebus drivers to get fixed and then make a decision. I have a Phoebus and I have had to resort to MS HD Audio drivers until Asus fixes the Phoebus drivers as the card is unusable in MP online games.
