I had no problems installing this card. I am using Klipsch pro media 2.1 speakers. I had high expectaions for this card and was not disappointed. Got this card for music only. Music sounds as good as anything I have ever heard. I had a sound blaster Live. X-Fi sound is noticably better. Tight bass - High high's. 10 band EQ is nice for finer adjustments. Looking for a great sound card look no further. This card is for music or movies. Not for gamers. Buy.com had the best price.

I upgraded an older Sony Vaio to Vista and disabled the on-board audio and now have great sound using Vista.

Features
X-Fi Crystalizer revitalizes compressed music and movies
Restore the details and vibrance your music and
movies lost during compression. X-Fi technology
intelligently enhances the highs and lows so you’ll hear it all–crisp cymbal crashes, wailing guitar solos, screeching tires and booming explosions.
X-Fi CMSS-3D makes headphone surround sound like multichannel speakers
Slip on your headphones and X-Fi technology moves
the sound away from your ears into the space around you. You’ll be surrounded by nine virtual speakers and feel like you’re sitting with your favorite band or in the best seat in the movie theater.
X-Fi CMSS-3D delivers surround sound from stereo music and movies
Expand your stereo music and movies into surround
sound. Voices are centered in front of you. Ambient sound appears all around you... just like a live performance. Listen on a pair of desktop speakers or a full 5.1 speaker system.
PowerDVD software for the ultimate PC movie
experience
Get Cyberlink PowerDVD software with DTS® and
Dolby Digital®-EX decoding via free download for a truly cinematic DVD movie watching experience.
