That's a Cirrus Logic Crystal and is very old pre XP in fact.
I'm no expert but you will have a hard time getting Win7 to support that.
Recently it took me some doing just to get an Audigy 2 up on Win7.
I would imagine a modern mobo has better onboard audio.

You're lucky but i think you know how uncooperative Creative drivers can be at times.

I've never recommended a creative card on those grounds!

thanks for the reply.

my mobo does have onboard audio but i was hoping that having a soundcard would allow a slight increase in performance from my processor.

ill just buy a new soundcard :)

a dedicated soundcard will make almost no difference to CPU usage these days. unless you have problems with the sound quality or are after EAX a soundcard isn't needed.
