"This driver works great. I am running nForce Chipset, AMD Cpu, nVidia Video, and now this Audio Card. These drivers satisfy the multi-outputs flexibility and other features. I recommend this driver if you have these cards. After driver install is complete, reboot computer even if you are not prompted to. *Once rebooted, Re-install "DirectX" if you play games.&quo
