  • Forum Thread: Sound Blaster XFI and ATI 5770 Conflict?

    I am looking to purchase an XPS9100 with the ATI 5770 Video card, but it won't let me add the SoundBlaster with just that card. If I go with the 5670 or the 5870 I can add the card. That makes no sense to me. Has anyone added a SB XFI Titanium or other XFI with an ATI 5770 Video card installed...

    Uhm, Has anyone else noticed that they've stopped selling the XPS line completely on the main page? All I see now are the Inspirons and Alienware configs. Perhaps they've finally realized they're overwhelmed? -Shane

    Thanks Terry. I found your post just before getting my Dremel tool out to "fix the problem". It wasn't obvious to me either. Maybe I'm just old school.
