    My onboard went bad, so I'm needing a new sound card, PCI interface, max $40, needs to have an audio out and an audio in at the very least. I'm in the US, Newegg is a good site.

    Any other ideas? Looks, okay, but I'd like to hear someone's opinion.

    Don't expect a great awesome sound card with that budget.

    I've never owned one of those but I've heard good things about it. Now that they have Vista / 7 drivers for it I'd say it's a good buy.

    I suppose I could raise my budget, max $120. Pay check comes Friday, so I'll order then.

    Also, how does this look to you? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829114004

    Edited:

    The thing, is, I know almost nothing about sound hardware, that's why I've needed the help. XD

    I never really had any experience with USB Interface Sound Cards.


    Go for the Creative I posted.

    I have this one, it's good. Make sure you get the Alchemy software if you're running Vista / 7.

    What kinda of speakers are you using? A high end soundcard is useless unless you have the speakers to go with it.

    Other wise I says stick with Creative. I've had a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS and now a X-Fi Xtreme and both are miles above onboard audio especially that RealTek HD garbage.

    If you are just looking to replace a fired sound then go for the Creative Audigy SE (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102003) like preveously posted.
    There are cheaper cards but better to spend $35 and get something that works than spend $20 on a piece of crap.

    If you do have some good speakers or want more then go for the Creative X-Fi Titanium (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102024)

    Edited:

    BUT if you are wanting a really cheap fix this may do it:
    $10 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829126005
    I actually had that card to fix the sound in an old comp and didn't want to spend much on it. As far as I could tell it sounded alright compared to the motherboard sound.

    I'll be going with the Creative. I've had a few of their speakers, and they've always been long-lasting, and certainly up to par.

    Until Friday, I orders a $5 piece of shit on ebay, that'll work via USB. It should be here tommarow.
