I have both Audigy 2 Platinum EX and X-Fi Elite pro and I find Audigy less problematic. X-Fi is prone to interference from (I think) more energy demanding video cards. I've tried in 4 systems and only one of them (oldest i3 + HD7850) has correct audio output. Other ones (especially i5+RX570) have problem with hum in 3D games. Heroes 3 and non-gaming software is OK so I think problems are escalating when video card draws more power.
