    Yeh, I half expected the frame rates to go up with the X-Fi, but clearly setting on the 'Ultra High' sound quality setting put more stress on the rest of the system. Curiosity made me wonder if the PC needed 2Gb RAM to support the Ultra High sound quality, but it didn't feel like the system was slowing down from lack of memory.

    Very interesting article, but I don't think you've quite persuaded me to get a headset over my current cheap-as-chips earbuds.

    Now... where do/can you get those heads from? I've been after a couple of those for absolutely ages :confused:

    For some reason this puts me in mind of the episode of Red Dwarf where we see all Kryten's heads, including the knackered one with the Yorkshire accent. :D

    nice article, G.

    Cheers,

    Got that one on ebay, email me if you want the seller's details, as I think they had a regular supply of them.

    Must say, it did give me a laugh setting up the photographs for those - just looked so rocking with the shades.

    We might buy another to sit in our shopfront.

    An interesting read, but I don't think you've convinced me to buy one over my earbuds just yet.

    This article is great, and it made me buy the Siberia headset from KPC's store, and have not regreted it.

    Cheers KPC!!
