That's up to you. I've had enough issues with Creative that I won't recommend them.

If you're looking for EAX compatibility, the AuzenTech's are good cards, and don't seem to have the driver issues that Creative does. The Prelude can be found on sale for about $175. The Xplosion is another good card, runs about $120.

Driver issues with Vista. And Creative disabling features in my card that worked under XP, trying to force people to buy new cards.

I'm sure there's lots of people that would say they're happy with Creative and their products, but I'm not one of them anymore.
