Summary: nice card and cheap it has a bunch of audio channels plus 2 fiber channels it will work in a pci express 2.0 and a 1.0 slot It also has a very nice port in the back to plug in the front audio ports if you have them that is onto the card, and thats a huge plus in my book.
Summary: This is a great card, I must add a few things: First, to get the microphone to work, you must set a 'flexijack' an optional input that either serves for a mic, or a 'line-in'. Load the latest software, and be sure to install the "Console Launcher" along with the drivers, and control panel app.
Summary: The Card was very easy to install, as well as software, i have a 1.8g intel core 2 duo processor that i had built in 2007, works great with windows pro home edition, i have a logitech 5.1 surround speaker system and they have never sounded this good, very pleased
Summary: Great Card for windows xp 64 bit. Gaming in surround sound at a whole new level of clarity. Good LARGE speakers with receiver make this card really show itself off. Playing game I find myself ducking in my chair from hearing noises from behind me and above me. Great Positional Audio quality if you know how to set it up. If you get this card be sure to get a quality surround system. A Logitech SURROUND sound kit would be a good starter system to go with it.
Summary: Works fine with Windows 7 machines. This card is made for PCI 2.1 slots and is not forward compatible with newer motherboards. Sound is very good with either speakers or headphones. Windows 7 detected the card and I did not use the CD at all.
Summary: By Frank Kowalski Long ago, I would settle for small pci sound, even though for my better rigs I would buy soundblaster, such as the AWE64. That's a long time ago). They delivered richer sound. I then stuck with soundblaster, throughout their pci series, and through Live! and Audigy 2, and X-Fi, the best they made. I came across their new X-Fi Xtreme Audio (that's the one requiring any Pci-E or "pci express" slot, remember, a PCI slot is NOT the same as the Pci-E slots).
Win 7 64 Bit Compliant, nice, and inexpensive sound card!

Summary: I have an "old (3yo)" DFI motherboard, which has audio integrated, and is equipped with 8GB RAM and an Intel Quad Core on it. It performs excellent yet, so, I did not think on replacing it. The problem begun when I upgraded my 32bit windows 7 software for the 64bit version. For my surprise, I did not find a sound driver that worked with the motherboard integrated audio. I did an extensive research in DFI and realtek, and none of the option drivers worked.
