It's all good in win7/vista with newer games tho

EDIT : Sorry for the hijack
newer games in vista = OpenAL = no problems with positional audio / hardware 3D sounds etc....

Because of the way Vista works and has gotten rid of the hardware abstract layer, you have no choice but to either use alchemy for those non OpenAL games or play them in XP :D
