    I am looking for a 5.1 or 7.1 soundcard that works with Windows ME. I checked the Creative website but all of there cards seem to require XP.
    There is a card by M-Audio that will work with ME or XP but they say it is not the best for gammers. I am not a gammer. I want a 5.1 system for movies but wouldn't mind playing some games on my system. Does anybody know if the M-Audio is an OK card for games or could suggest another one that will work with Windows ME. I heard the M-Audio is great for movies but still would like to play games in the future.

    customers gave it a 4 out of 5 so i suppose it will work just fine.
    just search the site and i am sure you will find more.

    The only problem you will run into is that you need a specific surround sound speaker set to get true surround sound out of it. One which has each channel on it's own plug (back,front,center & sub)
    Like the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16836121118
    which is what i bought. It is certainly not top of the line, but it sounds great for games and movies.
