After a successful launch in America, Creative now launches the GigaWorks ProGamer G500 speaker set in Europe.

The set is touted to be the perfect partner for the new Soundblaster X-Fi series, to get the maximum out of the sound capabilities of this 51million transistor card.

With it 310 Watts RMS blasting over the 5.1 combination, this is the right set for a serious gamer.

It has a genuine THX certification and that means you can get the maximum out of your movies as well, not that we at 3DVelocity can find a detailed description of exactly what's needed to get domestic THX certification.

Creative allowed us the honour of being the lucky ones to run this European premier.
