I bought this specifically for a Windows 7 system. Win 7 automatically recognizes the card and installs associated drivers. I made the mistake of attempting to install the disk that came with it and it caused a reboot and required a repair to windows startup followed by manual uninstall of the portion of the software which installed; don't do that. The card works just fine when you let windows detect it and install its own drivers, just don't bother with the software disk.

I would rate this card higher, but it's not the latest and greatest card.

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!

The sound card runs perfectly on Windows 7 64bit system. It has much better sound quality than onboard chips such as Realtek ALC 66x and 88x series. If you have a micro motherboard and a thick graphic card (GTX 460 or above), this PCI sound card will be a good choice since there may not be an extra PCIE 1x slot on micro motherboard or it is very likely covered by the graphic card. So if you have an available PCIE slot and want the greatest sound, choose those PCIE slot creative cards. If you only have PCI slots available or want a cost-efficient product, this sound card wont disappoint you.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
The included CD does not provide drivers for Windows 7.

Driver suggestions:
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.

The only problem I had with onboard sound was that using the recording program 'Audacity' I was given no input options, the recordings were poor, and input vol. was difficult to control. This wasn't the case with my previous system which I attributed to the SB Live Value card in that rig. Game sound with onboard was quite good and I could have my old 2.1 desktop speakers/subwoofer connected, as well as my headphones for those nighttime 'do not disturb' sessions. With the SB Audigy (as with the SB Live Value), the connection options are limited (I had to use a splitter), but the sound quality of music and games (and Audacity options) were superior. So yes it was worth it, but come on guys, how about some ports for headphones?

This is a no-frills, entry-level sound card and that is perfect for me. I do not want surround sound from my PC. I was perfectly happy with the my on-board audio from my MSI mobo until I discovered that the line-in input was dead in the water. I do some basic recording direct to PC on occasion (rip a cassette/vinyl, record some synthesizer, etc.) so I picked up a cheap sound card to get me back in business.
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.

I can't express how pleased I am. For the price, it really is amazing.
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.
