I didn't bother with it.

I bought a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz, which is a superior soundcard for pretty
much all of the target markets you positioned the Audigy for (with the
possible exception of 5.1 surround sound *gaming*), has better drivers (not
to mention a better record of driver support) and costs less.

Where I come from, that's called a better product.
