Sound Card Advice

I'm going from XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit any advice on which sound card to buy (no vista 64 bit drivers for my old X-Fi Fidelity card)

I couldn't find a x64 driver for my X-Fi Audio card (The creative site doesn't work for me for some reason). When I installed Seven x64 a driver was automatically installed. Might give it a try before you spend money on a new card, unless your wanting to upgrade anyway.

If you plan to go 64-bit I suggest that you stay clear of the Creative offerings, there's a ton of problems... I tossed my X-Fi for the Asus Xonar and never looked back

If you're the slightest interested in getting Hi-Fi quality sound out of your PC, get the new Asus Xonar Essence - it kicks butt!

One other thing you can do is just use the onboard sound. I was into all those cards and I haven't used a sound card in over 6 yrs a waste of time and money.

Not since my Ensoniq AudioPCI 1370 which Creative acquired and promptly orphaned. I vowed never to buy another Creative product again. Onboard sound soon obviated any need of mine for discrete audio componentry and ever since then I've not had a single pernicious driver problem like all the Creative customers we here from constantly.
