Bought this card today. Because it said support for vista, I thought it would work in Windows 7 as well.
Installed the card and I had immediately sound. Then I went to the creative site to install the drivers
because I had only control over the volume. There was no EAX, no bass control, nothing. After the installation of the drivers from creative: no sound. Nothing.
Then I deleted the card from computer management and installed other drivers (pax v3.50). Then I had really bad sound (very low, and it was absolutely not clean). In fact it was so low that even when everything on full (even speakers) it was softer then I'm used to at 25%.
I bought this card for the good audio (better then on-board). Now the audio and control over it (without the drivers) are exactly the same as the on-board.
