What a joke, creative STILL doesn't do digital surround sound.

With modern video cards there is no need for a sound card.

Creative sound cards are guaranteed to produce inferior sound to any of today's video cards. Guaranteed.

You can't even compare the two, creative does internal downmixing of anything to 44.0/24 (really weird non-standard sampling) whereas with both ATI and Nvidia you can do full 192/24 8 channel digital lossless.

And since you asked, my speakers are Polk audio monitor 30's, a CS1, an ED audio A2-300 subwoofer, and a Denon 1912 receiver. The setup I have makes anything from creative sound like sh*t. You could even get better speakers than mine, but if they're being driven by a creative turd they'd sound worse.
