Have you tried on a 32bit? I heard that they will only allow signed drivers in 64bit.

wow, you just posted a motivational poster from /b/, do you feel proud? this isn't 4chan dude, if you want to post irrelevant and slightly funny pictures instead of using words to make a point then go back to your interesting little image board.

but on a lighter note and one thats more to the point of this thread, can anybody tell me if i'm missing out on any features using an X-Fi extreme audio in Vista?

Creative are dicks man, you can't deny it.

There is plenty you could do instead of ***** and ride coattails. You could buy a Xonar from Asus and emulate EAX, or you could use *ting-y* onboard sound. Either way, your not getting the best sound quality, but going with the latter, atleast your not e-thuggin when it isnt necessary.

I find it funny that all of these "1337 h4x0rz" are having all this difficulty when I along with many others, have yet to have a single problem.

Maybe we just need to do some educating on how to update your drivers because god knows, they have came out with a new driver about every 2 weeks. This I know because I am 1337 and I know how to do the "complicated" driver update

Nope. My 5.1 works just fine and all the features and functionality are there.

The ones having issues never figured out how to do the update every couple weeks.

Thats why they are pi55ed...they just found out about that feature
