Hello everyone! Nice forum.
I live in Northern Virginia and am a hopeless computer junkie. I have migrated to Windows Vista 64 BIT and am really enjoying it. I am using a ASUS P5K WS with a Q9450 Quad Core running at 2.66 GHz. I have 8GBs of 800 MHz DDR2 memory and am using a ATI RADEON 3850 graphics card. Windows reports 5.9 in all of it's categories.
I purchased a X-Fi Sound Blaster and wonder if any one has found a satisfactory driver for it. I liked this card in XP, but the driver on their site is pretty funky for Vista 64 BIT.
I also tried to install a Nvidia 8800 GTS 512 video card and my Vista scores dropped to 3. It was a fresh install of a new OS so maybe it's a Vista issue. It worked great in my XP system.
Hope to hear from someone soon.


The funny thing when I built this PC I was going to buy a X-fi sound card and decided I'd try this one with Vista and it was fine. It is the ONLY thing I reused, it is like 6 years old and works flawless! Glad I didn't but a X-fi now :D

Sorry guys just thinking out loud.
