Windows 7: Just bought a new card - any install advice

Just bought a new card - any install advice

I currently have a Creative X-Fi OEM which I recently got working with help from this forum. Still not 100% happy so have lashed out on a Asus Xonar Essence (the one with built-in headphone amp).

I intend to uninstall the Creative software through Revo Pro and the driver through Device manager. Is there anything else I should be aware of or doing?
