Creative Labs X-Fi @ PC Perspective | HH Perspective "If you're on the fence with the X-Fi, consider gaming as a big factor. At the moment there's no real quality improvement (see 24-bit Crystalizer and CMSS-3D) to audio or performance improvement with the X-Fi (see Game Testing). I would wait a few months to see which titles are going to support X-RAM and then decide on a purchase, otherwise your current Audigy 2 ZS will do you just fine which performs and sounds just as good as the X-Fi (minus the X-RAM)."

Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000 (BL2KIT6464AA1005) Memory Modules @ Xbitlabs.com: "The memory chips used in Crucial Ballistix PC2-8000 memory modules are made by Micron, which is actually not at all surprising. Namely these are MT47H64M8BT-3:A chips. According to the specification, these memory chips are designed to work at 667MHz frequency with CL=5. How does Crucial manage to make these chips work at 50% higher frequency than their nominal value? The answer to this question is quite obvious: it is possible due to extremely high voltage."
