The reason I bought this card, and the reason I like it so much, is that it's pretty much a workhorse card, and has no problems. I've used this exact card in other machines, and it does the job, when it comes to gaming, etc.
Installing a dedicated sound card is always a good idea; I've found that just adding a dedicated sound card improves overall system performance, and this one definitely handles the business!
1. Greatest sound quality at 30 bucks. Supports raw DTS/DD output to a decoder through SPDIF. I tried this function on Logitech Z5500 with PowerDVD 10 and KM player, and it worked very well. (Need to buy a Mono to RCA adapter and a coaxial cable)
2. Fully compatible with Windows 7 64bit.
3. Very compact. It does not affect your graphic card's fans.
The included CD does not provide drivers for Windows 7.
1. For official driver, you can download its Windows 7 driver through Creative official website. It works perfectly. Make sure you do not use the included CD if you use Windows 7.
2. For unofficial driver, I recommend Daniel K P17x support pack 2.7. It is actually better than the official driver and gives you full functions including crystalizer.
Typical PCI - very easy installation. The Creative install cd-rom walks you through the rest (though I wish it was packed with less garbage apps I do not need and have to skip installation of). My only complaint was that this card did not work well with Reaper DAW software using the standard audio drivers (on-board audio had worked fine, interestingly). I had to download the ASIO4ALL driver to get Reaper DAW running properly.
The sound quality is great, it even makes my standard PC speakers sound far better. Your crappy speakers will make sounds you didn't think they could make. Music will sound smoother and you get so much more.
I use nice headphones most of the time and you can REALLY see a difference if you have some quality speakers or headphones. The bass is something else, when I installed the card I immediately noticed how the bass sounded, or rather, felt. Your music will have strong smooth bass that it never had before which really brings it to a new level. The highs are clearer than ever, you notice things like the crash and cymbals ringing as clear as everything else. All the sound ranges are not mixed and muddled anymore.
The sound your standard motherboard gives you is mostly midrange with a bit of highs and a bit of lows. This card will give you everything, the highs, the lows, the mids, and make each one sound far better.
There are better cards out there but for 25-30 dollars, this card far exceeded my expectations.
Easy to install, CHEAP! , and sounds amazing for how much it costs.
I highly recommend this sound card.

The sound card itself is absolutely great. I'd give it 5 stars if it wasn't a Creative product. Creative is notorious for their abysmal driver support. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Kairu
