    Hands down, Auzentech X-Fi Prelude. Especially if you plan on using the analog audio outputs to a good amp and speaker setup. It does of course support the latest EAX (5.0).

    Next best would be the original X-Fi lineup from Creative, NOT the newest OEM half height PCI cards though. Again, this would be with the analog audio outputs.
    Main: NZXT Switch 810 | ASRock Z97 Extreme4 | i7 4790K| 32GiB | 780Ti
    ESXi Server: Lackrack Enterprise Edition | Dell R710 | 2 x Xeon X5570 | 96GiB | 14(28)TB ZFS-Raid10
