A Nightmare To Install!
2 weeks ago
Summary: I started to write a long, rambling diatribe about this card, but I'll just try to be as brief as possible. This card is one of the worst that I've ever used. I tested this card on two different Windows 7 x64 machines. In both cases, the installation was a monumental pain in the (you know what). The problems that I incurred getting this card to work in several of my Digital Audio Workstations were so bad that I ultimately gave up.
Summary: I bought this card, because I needed a good quality sound card with ASIO low latency support. I like everything about this product. It was cheap and high performance, now I can plug my guitar in my PC and use guitar rig to play any sound I want. I think this product has a great value/performance thing. I reccomend it to everybody who wants a good 5.1 sound card and studio recording.
Summary: This card definitely creative works perfect, I have currently running windows 8 and I'm happy with the quality of audio and control interface that provides me. if you import the audio hardarwe more than good speakers but the audio processing harwdare a creative audio card is very important
Turn your pc in to a high quality multi channel audio system

Summary: if you don't have one of these X-Fi series Sound blasters, and or the remote controlled x/o drive bay, you"re really missing out..super clean..for gaming, takes the load off the pc processor..if included,the creative media center software includes a super-rip feature, whereby you can un-compress music..the enhanced sound recorder, lets you record anything that plays on your pc, or through any analog/digital input, with hiss removal/ lp scratch filters and more.
Summary: Bought this card to install in a Windows7(64)platform. I also went down many dead ends with Creative Labs "Support". Go online and find PAX drivers. Everything is golden. Drivers work and the Creative Control Panel works. Works flawlessly with all audio programs. You may or may not have success using Vista drivers on 32-bit Windows7, but there is no X-FI support from Creative for 64-bit drivers. Pax is the only option.
You will be amazed by the sound this card produces.

Summary: The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi PCI (SB0460) Sound Card is a very powerful sound card. It will not disappoint you when you play your favourite games, when you listen to music or even when you are watching your movies. It has a lot of enhancements you can enable and adjust like the X-Fi crystalizer which improves the sound quality when you are listening to a low quality mp3.
