I've got this one.

I used the drivers provided by C-Media in place of the AOpen ones. It's a C-Media chip set.

It was a lot more at the local comp store. I think it's great. Sound is clear and bright. The software has a lot of bells and whistles you'll find interesting. EQ, mixer and channel select. You can disable the midi/joystick socket if you want to also.

It's just as good as the sound blaster line for a lot less money. I've used SB cards before. Major pain in the butt getting the drivers and support software to work right.
My little card slips right in and loads right up. It's a lot of bang for the buck.

It's a good little card. You don't have to spend your life savings to have good equipment.
