many people get this confused.... the Extigity is the external card!!!
I have the audigy 2 platinum (NON EX).
the difference is in the break out box. You know the box with the digital connecters and firewire port? well on a NON EX version that box fits into the 5.25" bay on the PC, like where the CD drive goes. Thats the only diff!!!
i went to pcworld because they gave me a faulty hd and got a CREDIT NOTE for the price of the hd, and thought to myself i could do with a decent sound card. So i asked for assitance from one of there advisors and asked which one was best he recommended the audiogy 2 platinum ex i asked him how much it was he said 99.99 so i grabbed it went to the counter and the sales assistant said 123.00 please i said no it is 99.99 he said sorry its 199.99. i disagreed with him and asked to see the manager he advised me and said its 199.99 i showed him where it was and the assistant that helped me say it was 99.99 in the end i got the sound card for 99.99 i thoght which was a good price
please can people look in the new thread called what do people think of pcworld and there staff
