Purpose is mainly listening to music on my 5.1 system (cheap Altec Lansings...), although I do game some. I don't particularly have a price ceiling, although cheaper is better. The ones I've looked at so far will give you a general idea of my price range... M-Audio Revolution 5.1 Creative Audigy 2 Terratec Aureon 5.1 Turtle Beach Santa Cruz Any experience with these cards or brands anyone? Also, I'm wondering if many sound card makers are expected to start to produce cards that use PCIe...because an NForce4/Xpress200/K8T890 board will probably be one of my next purchases as well. TIA.
