Do not buy Creative Soundcards. Please. As I write this my PC has just recovered from yet another spontaneous reboot caused by my egregious Audigy drivers. It took them months to support Win XP and when they did the drivers were rubbish. Their Technical support is run by a medium sized poodle called Doris. Well that's the only way to explain the way it operates. Did I say 'operates'? Silly me. These people just can't make soundcards. They have just managed to flood the market and get adopted. Like Microsoft. But hey, if you enjoy the convenience of always finding these waste of a PCI slot boards always in stock at PC World and don't mi[crackle]nd hav[click]ing your audi... o experi[fththt]ence impaired after spending a fortune on this junk, then go right ahead. I've had it with these muppets.
