I just finished building my system and got a Createive X-Fi Gamer card.
Using Vista 32 bit.
I have the latest drivers installed (2.15.0002) and the card works fine.

I however, have never used the card under XP, so i don't know what i'm missing.
I have 2.1 / Sennheiser headphone setup.

I've read about the issue with EAX in Vista, but i've never quite understood if it's been fixed or not, and if i do need to do something special to fix it or not.

I have this Alchemy program that i downloaded off the creative drivers page but i have no idea how it works or if i "need it".

For example, to play Civilization IV with EAX 4 (it supports it in game), do i need to add the game in the Alchemy program?

creative really are a bunch of *****. they're trying to sell this to audigy users for $10...... yet you can download a modified version for nothing from a thread in their very own forums. :D
