I run a cheaper Asus DG for the optical out and the software works just fine, its not like i have the control panel open all the time. I changed my settings and left it alone.
Creative's drivers work great on Windows 7. Everyone's drivers sucked when Vista was released. We've come a long way since then though. The latest Creative drivers are very stable for me and they're over a year old.

Case and Power Supply upgraded

I'm going to skip the i7 Sandy Bridge refresh as it offers nothing new, so no X79 either.

Next I'll pick up 2 Seagate Barracuda XT 3 TB drives for storage needs.
