NOT a 5.1 card!11/26/2012
Even though the box says "5.1 channel" card... it is not. There is no Center channel and no LFE (sub) channel. 6 channel - yes (combinations of left and right and front and rear and surround). 5.1 channel - no. Absolute waste of money and misleading typing on the box.
For our basic needs, it's perfect4/19/2012
Installed it easily, the software was simple to install, and it works fine for our very basic needs (church computer lab where audio out only is needed). The only thing I'd warn others about is that the install disk is a mini-CD, so some computers won't be able to utilize it.
