      It fitted in the old PCI bus to bypass dead on board chips. Saved me buying new mini cube pc just for sound failure. Bargin.

      I absolutely love this card and the sound it produces when paired with my Sennheiser's. It is far beyond anything else I've ever owned, including my expensive hi-fi setup. The range of customisability and software functionality allows a very high level of control over card. I also noticed a huge difference in perception of positional surround sound in games such as Battlefield. I would recommend this to anybody looking to take the listening experience on their computer to a new level of enjoyment.
