Hey. Getting an Alienware tonight, so I need this question answered immediately. Can I use a 7.1 X-Fi sound card with 5.1 Creative speakers? If so, will there be any quality loss?

Yes you can. I do. I have 5.1's on my 7.1 Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS.

only an experience loss... there shouldn't be a quality loss. just don't connect 2 corresponding speakers, seeing as they don't exist for you, and you'll be just fine

You won't have any quality loss. Make sure, in your sound card settings, that you set your speaker setup as 5.1.
