You are stuck with plain 2 channel stereo in VISTA for DirectSound/3D based games - Luckily newer games support OpenAL, so no problem there. This is why Creative came up with Alchemy drivers - CS is supported on the list - alchemy drivers are free for X-FI and Audigy 2 if not mistaken - grab those and install them in Vista, this will bring back your crippled features back to life since it is translating your DirectSound to OpenAL, it does work and it will sound just as good, give it a try.
