I bought this soundcard because Creative soundcards are marketed and proven as having the best soundcards for both your regular computer user as for the audio enthusiast and gamer. But the main reason for me was that this soundcard came with a low profile bracket in addition to the regular sized bracket. As I was building a media center pc out of a desktop model pc this card gave me the ability to hook up my surround system and get the full experience of real surround sound.
