I'm not particular about the chipset; I just want it to sound good.
Here are my needs:
1) It must support 96KHz, 24-bit audio (or better).
2) It must have Windows 7 64-bit drivers.
3) It must have a Pci-E x1 interface.
4) It must have front panel connectors.
5) It must be able to auto-switch between the front and rear panel connectors when headphones are plugged in or removed.
The Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium looks promising, but many of the reviews seem to be contradictory on the areas of Windows 7 compatibility and auto-switching.
