The very po0r sound on my IC7-G (very poor quality, listen to an mp3 with it -lol) and also the mic issues, forced me to get an Audigy 2. So much superior and I'm glad I bought it now.
Don't forget the NB heatsink ring will explode due to tension and poor soldering.
Having said that I still love my IC7-G due to getting a 2.4 @ 3.0 @ stock v.
