I know this is abit old, but davcon is totally wrong the SB0460 is an X-fi Platinum and is not a cheaper rebranded Audigy card. I bought this card when it first came out to replace an older ASUS card & have never used anything else. I did have a problem after Windows 7 came out with drivers but within a few months Creative came out with updated drivers and software. Honestly if this card ever dies on me I will be on ebay looking for another one. It is in my third new build as we speak lol.
