The one thiing you didn't look at with that brand of card is what versions are supported. newguy11 is running Vista while the drivers for that list only upto XP! Creative drivers not only work well on 7 so far they carry updates for the 64bit editions of Vista.
Creative has one huge advantage in the driver department, Daniel K., the dude is amazing, he knows Creative's hardware and drivers better than Creative's own engineers, he has a modded set of drivers out already for Win7...
Daniel K. does it again
they should hire this guy as a consultant or something as much as he fixes their drivers for the masses that have Creative sound cards...
also, here's a link to their refurbished sale, I got a X-Fi Platinum for less than $70 shipped, there are some really good deals on there and my "refurbished" card and drive bay didn't have a sctratch on it, it looked brand spankin' new and works like it's new too...
