Hello! I'm a new member here & I need your help...

I've been using Creative Sound Blaster X-FI MB-3 software suite that came bundled with my Gigabyte H170 Gaming-3 motherboard. The board has Realtek ALC-1150 HD Audio Codec...
I'm using Logitech Z-506 5.1 External Speakers on Analog Connection...
I'm playing Modern FPS games like Call Of Duty, Battlefield etc. So I need some Good Sound Positioning for Directional Audio....

What should be the settings in the SB XFI software for Gaming Audio...? There are sliders for Crystalizer, Surround, Dialog Plus, Smart Volume etc....
And what about the option SBX Pro Surround...? Is it actually required for External 5.1 Speakers during gaming or is it meant for Virtual Surround with Headphones Only...?
Do I leave it On/Off to get some Decent Directional Sound through my speakers in Modern Games...?

Thank You....
