    I recommend you to buy ASUS Xonar d2 or d2x.No problems in vista at all.Rally nice card,and the sound is really clear.

    Or you could get the Auzentech X-Fi Prelude. It puts every Creative X-Fi to shame and the Prelude shows how the X-Fi had to be made from the beginning, plus you get DDL and DTS with it.

    Either way, you can't go wrong with a Xonar or the Prelude.

    The Prelude is $129.99 IIRC @ NCIX.... Not a bad deal for that card.

    Prelude > all. Who needs a front bay anyways which just take up space better used by more hard drives.

    Sure and as Claymore mentioned, snap in a better opamp and you get even better sound quality.

    I use the Asus Xonar D2X. I love it to death. I have used a fair amount of others too (Barracuda AC1, B-Enspire, X-Fi Fatality) and none can compare. Haven't used the Prelude though but have heard some great things about it.
