Any reason to upgrade my XP era sound card?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had this card for a long time now, moving it from 3 or 4 systems now. It works great, no problems and the DDLive is awesome for use with my receiver. It's used for gaming/movies only (Creative EMU0202 for music/recording). The manufacturer still provides driver updates. There are some newer cards in the same line, but this is one of those "if it ain't broke" moments rolleyes.gif
