I have my X-Fi Elite Pro since 2005/2006 and I really love it. It works really good with:
AMD FX-8350 AM3+
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 rev. 1.1 AM3+
16GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte (996776) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB
Enermax Modu87+ EMG900EWT 900W
SSD Crucial M550 256GB, SSD Mushkin Striker 480GB
Fractal Design Define XL USB 3.0 Black Pearl
I'm planning to build a new AMD platform when Ryzen will be available. I'm pretty sure that my good old Elite Pro will be useless, unfortunately.
I'm curious if anyone tried to use PCIe to PCI adapter with Elite Pro, that I could use in a new build since PCI slots are not present in the new MBs? Can you recommend something?
Or, are there any alternatives that I could use? I was thinking about Sound Blaster ZxR...
