My Sabertooth 990FX audio also just crapped out and I ended up buying a used SB0410 (Sound Blaster Live! 24-Bit) off eBay because it's listed as fully supported under ALSA.

Some cards only have Windows drivers. Since you're using Debian you should check the model of whatever you're getting and make sure it's supported:

You are quite omnipotent on the overclockdom. I was 100% sure your link would somehow trick me into a rick roll but I was wrong. That looks pretty decent and claims "linux" support. I do use the optical but I could settle for using a 3.5mm to RCA splitter to the head unit if I must. My only gripe with this is the mono microphone jack, I need stereo line in. Much appreciated though, might be a good temporary fix. Browsing around for something similar with stereo line in.

What's with these boards? I've never had integrated audio crap out before, and I have some boards going back to the 440bx era with working sound! The Bengoo pook listed does claim to be supported by Linux but I don't see bengoo listed under Alsa supported cards, might have to swap to Ubuntu... I can't seem to find any sound blaster PCI-E cards cheap on ebay right now.

If it's a generic Chinese USB card claiming Linux support, maybe it's using a generic interface. Your choice to try it or not.

There appears to be a hefty premium for PCIE over PCI. ($40 vs $9) Cheapest I see are Sound Blaster X-Fi and Asus Xonar DGX but check the specific model because some features are not supported (and some models don't work at all).

It'll be detected as an audio device (like a DAC/headphone amp) and you just need to change your output device from onboard to that. It doesn't need drivers because there are no drivers and there's no software because it's handled by the OS.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)

I wonder why PCI-E cards are so expensive? I figured by now all of the 2010 era PCI-E x-fis would be on ebay in droves but I was wrong. I'm watching a sound blaster Z but it's $59.99.. Quite the hefty premium over what pook listed just to upgrade to stereo inputs.

I'd take a gamble on the bengoo but I realized I do require the stereo line in, otherwise it's mostly good enough, ignoring possible issue with Debian.

I came across that one, I'm just not quite sure. Chances are these would work in Ubuntu as a generic USB sound device but I'm not really sure about Debian, the OS I use for my work is a tad more picky when it comes to sound cards.

Kind of just sitting back and seeing if somebody has an X-Fi laying around before I grab one from ebay. Those are clearly listed supported for ALSA.

I can't believe with all the crap laying around I don't have sound cards.

I have a spare x-fi titanium (not hd) and a sound blaster z.
