In Conclusion...

While the benchmark scores were only generated on the two mainboards listed in the Test System Configuration Table, I also popped the card into Iwill's XA100 Plus, EPoX's MVP3G-M and even an early revision of FIC's VA-503+ and the card performed without flutter although none of the systems used PCI soundcards or modems (some of these DMA bus master expansion cards may cause conflicts but I have none currently to test for compatibility).   Whereas cards based upon nVidia's TNT and S3's Savage3D can experience some compatibility issues (most correctable at a performance hit), the Creative Blaster Banshee seems extremely stable and compatible with both MVP3 and Aladdin V based mainboards.
