SB0790 and Windows 8

  • Summary: This card will work with Windows 8. It should be noted however that the card does not support beyond a 16 bit data link so theres a great chance if you are running Windows 8 your motherboard will support a faster card. That being said, there are applicable drivers on Creative's website to enable using the card which still gives a much richer sound and better effects over most on-board sound and clearer sounds if using apps like ventrillo or teamspeak with a microphone.

Good if you buy it for cheap.

  • Summary: I wanted a better sound card than my on-board sound chip and I wanted a fiber optic out as my receiver is about 12 feet away, and an analog connection produces line noise. The drivers installed rather easily on my Windows 7 rig, though I didn't like the update software, as it forced you to attend the update of each component. (And there are several.) Creative's sound interface was easy enough to use.

  • Summary: In short? Don't buy this card. Returned it because I could barely get the microphone to work under Windows 7 x64 (the Line-In and Mic share a jack, the "FlexiJack", and you must use Creative's software to configure it - however the software included with the card doesn't work for it and the updates from the website have to be installed in a very particular way for them to work right).
  • Pros: It's PCI-Express, rather than just PCI.
  • Cons: Not an actual X-FI audio processor, horrible driver support for Vista/Win7.

  • Summary: This card is a rebranded Audigy. It is not a good card at all. Do not purchase this card if you want an X-Fi card because it's not on the same level as real X-Fi cards. The price is barely acceptable for this card though you can probably get a better Audigy for a few bucks less.
  • Pros: Nothing at all is good about this card.
  • Cons: This card is not an X-Fi card. It is a rebranded Audigy.

  • Summary: I am very disappointed with this card,It works great with 3.5mm jacks but when you decide you want to use the digital in for ANYTHING it will shout at you constantly with crackling/popping.Currently have sent an email to get the issue resolved but if it isn't soon I won't have the card any longer.
  • Pros: Analog output
  • Cons: Digital In

  • Summary: Watch out for this one if you are running vista/Media center/Nvidia graphics cards It installs fine and works great but it makes its very own Rice crispies sound track. I have tried using it without the graphics card and it still pours on the milk!! I have now installed it on my xp machine and it works fine and is great value for money. I wanted the optical in/out which this card has for multi media sharing use.

  • Excerpt: За такие деньги брать не стоит.
  • Pros: Название впечатляет.
  • Cons: За такую цену звук совсем ужасен, для прослушивания музыки не годится точно. Встроенная в материнке GIGABYTE выдавала звук получше. Куча настроек, но добиться качественного звучания так и не получилось :\ Да, и как оказалась это обрезанная карточка, имеющая только общее название с остальными в линейке.

  • Excerpt: Как обычно что бы раскрыть потенциал карты-приходится искать дрова от DanielK, все начинает работать, появляется расширенный функционал ПО старших моделей, что для неопытных пользователей может оказаться сущим кошмаром.
  • Pros: неплохое звучание.немного получше модели аудиджи, плюшки в виде кристалайзера
  • Cons: поддержка со стороны производителя

  • Excerpt: долго не проработала, через полгода после окончания гарантии начал фонить левый канал, слышны передвижения мыши, открытие окон и т.д.
  • Pros: звук в разы лучше встроенного, много настроек в панели управления
  • Cons: стояла на 3-х разных компьютерах, и на всех одна и та же проблема: частые неприятные для уха щелчки, что в музыке, что в системных звуках windows, при открытии окон, папок ... с другими продуктами Creative такого не наблюдалось, были и есть: SB Live 5.1, Audigy 2, Sound Blaster Z.
