Windows 7: Sound Card recommendation

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Sound Card recommendation

I'm tired of Creatives über **** windows 7 driver support, so I'm willing to purchase a new card. Any recommendations? I'd love it to have an external volume wheel and/or RC.

Windows 7/10 64 bit

I don't know about an external volume control, but check out the HT Omega line of PCI sound cards. These cards also have the System Mixer function. I was using an HT Omega Striker 7.1 in my Win 7 64 bit system but went back to a SoundBlaster as I needed the better MIDI synths that are built into SoundBlasters.

I'm running Windows 7 x64. Currently for sound I have an Audigy 2 with 5.1 analogue speakers. This doesn't work as well as I'd like and I wonder if there's a newer card with good Windows 7 drivers that supports 5.1 analogue out? Any help appreciated.
