The problem usually isn't whether it will run on the windows OS, but
whether the after-market or share-ware application will support it.  For
instance if you want to run FFTDSP-42 by AF9Y or the DSP programs from
Brian Beezly, you need a "real" soundblaster card.  If I were you I would
pay for the real thing then it won't be a issue.  {the above ref. programs
display a waterfall spectrum display of your receiver audio and enhance
receiver audio in some cases}
