Pros:

excellent sound quality. I have had 7.1 integrated sound and 1 or 2 $50 cards and it is a world of difference. if you "can't tell the difference" between lossless wav and a 128kbps MP3, you will after installing this card. (provided you have high fidelity speakers or headphones and even if you don't you will still hear a noticeable difference.) even if you are only going to be using just stereo (L and R) it will blast your brain. I had no installation issues contrary to popular belief. installing on BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX with AMD 6000+ processor. went off completely without a hitch. you FINALLY get to hear the audio the way a game's sound editor does!

Cons:

there has to be a mode switcher because it would take forever to compile a complete list of games and audio programs\sources for an automatic mode switcher. it is a necessary evil.

Other Thoughts:

has 3 separate modes for entertainment (music, video) gaming (games....duh) and audio creating. (sound editing). once it is installed (physically and mentally :) there will be an icon in the task bar for quickly switching modes. YOU MUST CHOOSE GAME MODE IF YOU ARE PLAYING GAME. PERIOD. you can play movies and music in game mode, and while they won't sound as good as they will in entertainment mode, it is still perfectly acceptable audio. now, if you play games in entertainment mode, most explosions will have a LOT of crackle, gunshots will be quiet while objects (moving, hitting) will be extremely loud and there will be quite a bit of audio stutter. now, when you play a game IN game mode, the game's audio will envelope you and eat you ALIVE!
