There is nothing smart about pirating software, even if the company is ripping people off (which I think creative is obviously doing).
The correct solution is just not to buy any more of their crap, which will be exactly what I'll be doing.

Don't pirate it, boycott it by not using it.
It's supporting the company by even pirating it.. why would you want such a sloppily supported, joke of a card in your system anyway?
Do people seriously still believe in FPS gains from a minor CPU load being taken off our insanely overpowered Core2Duo processors?
Maybe at 640x480 you can see a difference in real world gameplay.. as in a difference between 900FPS and 910FPS.
In case no one out there knows yet, the bottleneck for gaming is still on the video card.. not audio acceleration.
Spend your money saved not buying Creative products on a better GPU if you truly are serious about FPS gains.
It's the difference between a 8800GTS and a 8800GTX! Depending on sound card (not) purchased.

Of course you shouldn't pirate it, but Creative didn't let on the X-Fi would be worthless within a year of it being launched (for understandable reasons).
X-RAM! Yeah right, as if any game is going to benefit from that now OpenAL is the only way to the card.
The only thing the X-Fi series cards have going for them now is their high-quality (by Creative's standards) sampling-rate converter hardware to change the internal 48KHz processing to and from whatever it is output as (often 44.1KHz).
I certainly won't buy another Creative (heh, the name is even a mockery) card as the days of audio-acceleration in hardware have passed. And physics-acceleration will be gone in a couple of years thanks to every more powerful GPUs with physics-support (hello Aegia, your days are numbered as well).
