thing that can make or break a good sound/video card kit is
its bundle. Luckily Terratec decided to include a decent bundle.
Including copies of Wavelab lite, Mixman Base Edition, Winjey
(an mp3 player), and Internet phone 4.5 the Xlerate Pro is no
slouch when it comes to the bundle. But there is one important
thing it was lacking, games! On the front cover of the box it
clearly states, "Ultimate 3d audio for accelerated gaming,"
so they are obviously targeting this card toward gamers, why
didn't include any games to show off their card? Doesn't make
any sense to me.
of the card went on without a hitch. I think hardware installation
has finally progressed to the point where anybody can do it...
even your grandmother. Windows' Plug and play is finally doing
its job, just as it should have done years ago. Even if you
do have any problems, Terratec includes an installation manual
with step by step instructions.
