I'm putting my spare parts into a system for my brother for X-mas, and I need a sound card. I could get the SB Live 5.1 OEM, or I could get something nicer (i.e. the Game Theater XP or an Audigy) and put my SBLive 5.1 into his system.

My "problem" is that I have the 5.1 Platinum, and my brother will never use the LiveDrive. If I get the Game Theater XP the LiveDrive will go to waste. So, I'm getting an Audigy X-Gamer, hooking my LiveDrive to it, and putting the Live 5.1 into my brother's system. As long as I'm going to put up with Creative's "drivers" (cough-bloatware-cough) the Audigy Platinum EX is tempting, but from what I can tell, the main improvement over the LiveDrive IR is the FireWire port. I don't have any FireWire devices, so the IEEE1394 port on the back of the card will be plenty.
