Windows 7: Should I or shouldn't I?

Should I or shouldn't I?

Having installed Windows 7 and hooked in my Creative FPS2000 speakers, I have perfectly acceptable sound for my needs. I have a Gigabyte P55 UD5 mobo.
Prior to the upgrade I used the Creative Audigy 2ZS box and card for sound.
From the sound viewpoint I don't need to use it now but the Audigy box provided convenient plug in points for a microphone, audio inputs, my video camera's Firewire connections or headphones (giving me a volume control for the 'phones). However if adding the Audigy hardware to the mix is likely to cause problems there are alternatives for all the connections I need on the mobo - they are just a bit inconveniently placed.
Hence the question - should I or shouldn't I install the Audigy hardware?

As the owner of an audigy if you have an alternative DONT. Creatives driver support is one step short of non exisitent


Good luck

Well said Ken. And I had to laugh out loud when I read your post.

I think it's interesting that the more experienced users of Creative products will eventually all come to the same conclusion.
