    I would so use them if someone made them. I hate how creative takes forever and a day to release a driver. Vista is my biggest hate, I have'nt used it but only for a bit bacuse of creative lack of beata drivers. If only someone would make good 3ed party drivers for them/


    :respect:
    To the person that starts making them.

    The current drivers seem to work fine. Just because they don't release drivers every month like the Video card industry doesn't mean Creative is lax in their work. It's not like you can overclock a sound card anyway. Vista is still in Beta, so they really don't have to have drivers for it anyway. I'm sure they will have some by the time Vista is released to the mainstream public, don't worry.

    Oh, and here are the drivers you seek for Vista, young one. ;)

    Audigy Series

    X-Fi Series

    It took two months for vista beta 2 driver, RC1 is released and still they are not on top of things. I can understand them being late with drivers for games they do not sponcer with EAX but it takes them forever to even fix those sound issues in chosen EAX games.
