Decent Audio Card?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i got a 750i EVGA mobo. was wondering whats a good value audio card to get?

i can pretty much get the PCIe 1x in and maybe a PCI if i dont go SLI soon. (those video card are huge. almost took up 2 PCI slots...)

my budget is probably like $40 or less.

i want it cuz i do movie night sometimes and static just ruins the surround sounds...

For PCI, the Audigy is a nice card that fits your budget:

i can personally comment on that PCI card. I wanted a cheap upgrade from my on board which had a hiss. The difference was incredible. But i have yet to get the inputs working in vista yet.

so go for it, that is an incredible value for money card.
