Summary: I bought this card to replace my ASUS Xonar DGX PCI card because I upgraded to SLI in my computer and I lost the regular PCI slot due to the size of the second video card. I needed the PCI-E card (which this fits into a X1 or X4 variable PCI-E slot). Before buying this, I used the onboard Realtek audio, which isn't great for headphone gaming.
Summary: This is a perfect balance between the high end sound cards that are way more than I need for my non-gaming application and the really cheap cards that are a pain to get working. I use it in my HTPC, it's much better than the on-board audio, the drivers are great, loaded quickly and easily under window 7, and I am able to use both SPDIF for movies and analog out for stereo music without having to make changes to windows. Just what I wanted...
