You are moving from creative to Xonar, why do you want to waste your money? just use the integrated audio, you are not getting any improvements from buying sound cards.

UNLESS you want VSS.

Yeah my Sound Blaster Z has had problems with channels switching by themselves since I got it. Really annoying

Got no problems with my Creative X-Fi Titanium. I will be buying a creative sound card for my next build because they're still the best for gaming or reusing it. (Unless something better comes out, and no Xonar is not it)

I have a Sound Blaster Zx. Absolutely zero problems over here.

But hey, that's just my experience.

I have Creative speakers and they work just fine.

I have some Sennheiser hd 439's and tested it between my onboard audio and the asus xonar u3 and it's a big difference.

I've owed these Creative offerings over the years:

Game Blaster
Sound Blaster
Sound Blaster Pro
Sound Blaster AWE32
Sound Blaster Live!
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium

They have all worked perfectly and I've never had any problems with any of them to date. Maybe I'm just lucky... though if you were to ask me I'd say I'm just hyper competent and impervious to issues ;)

For the record I'm running a Xonar DG in my gaming box so I'm not beholden to Creative for anything... except perhaps many years of decent, if not quite good, PC sound.

I have a Creative mind and it works perfectly.

I still have my X-Fi, and it works without issues.
