From someone who has a Philips Acoustic Edge in an A7M266, I highly recommend this board. I originally had a SBLive! Platinum 5.1 in this system and ran into DMA issues and hard drive corruption. When I put in the Acoustic Edge all of my problems went away. The card sounds great and runs without a hitch. That's my vote anyway.
