Both cards perform equally: Overall, the Sound Blaster Extigy is a fine product that everyone who uses a computer for entertainment should consider.

Sound Blaster Extigy Tour is a dynamic presentation which explains all advantages of the Extigy. Music does blatser from the center and rear satellites but the stereo panorama gets worse. The Extigy adds a long list of input and output jacks to your desktop.
