On the subject of drivers, I don't currently have any issues with my X-Fi Fatal1ty in Win 7 x64. I think their drivers improved quite a lot while Vista was about (the original Vista drivers were awful as far as I remember). By the time Win 7 came along, most of the issues had been resolved - at least for the X-Fi cards.
Yeah I had no problems either, when I first went to Vista my Fatal1ty worked like a charm, I read about all the other peoples issues and counted myself lucky. However Vista damn that was a piece of junk! I hated it and went back to XP anyways. I had so many other random issue I couldn't be bothered and I used XP until 7 came out.
