Windows 7: Non Creative Labs Sound cards

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Non Creative Labs Sound cards

I'm tired of trying to get Creative cards (like the X-Fi XtremeGamer) to work reliably with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (on a new install, after manually installing the drivers because Creative's installer fails consistently. Now the update called for by Windows Update also fails because "Setup is unable to identify a supported device...).

I found the X-Fi from the Microsoft webpage of supported devices, so i figure MS is useless for product selection. What other, non-Creative Labs sound cards or USB devices are fully supported (as reported by actual users, not as recommended by Microsoft...) on Windows 7 x64?

I've heard really good things about the HT | OMEGA line... - HT | OMEGA STRIKER - $75 - HT | OMEGA CLARO - $160 - HT | OMEGA CLARO Plus+ - $175 - HT | OMEGA CLARO HALO - $200 - HT | OMEGA CLARO HALO XT - $250

Those are all 7.1 cards with 24-bit /192 on the last four. Here's the HT | OMEGA website.
