Maybe even with asio drivers, if such exists of course.
Any suggestions?

It's Windows 2000, so it hardly matters because you'll be talking to it's crappy HAL and lagging every which way in any case.

Much as I hate the bloody things, the SB5.1 probably has ASIO drivers, but I don't know and assume this solely because the Audigy does and ran on the same chip. Not sure if any generic ones exist for Envy24 cards.

Thanks, people on Vogons suggesting live! or Audigy.
So it looks like it is Creative zone only.

Some Yamaha cards had ASIO drivers and a bunch of overpriced re-badged Via Envy/Tremor ones did, but it's not gonna matter because in Win2K it's just gonna act like a dumb DAC/ADC regardless of what you use.

So you think that even ASIO can't fix lags of HAL?

I never noticed any real difference as far as that went. It seemed to depend more on luck of the draw as to what machine you were using - lag was never too bad on the Presler, for example, but it was quite prominent on a crummy little HP branded P4 that someone gave me.
