hmm so would the Xonar DS be my best bet for under $50, or is there something better?

The Xonar is a good choice for the money. But it will still depend on the speakers. A $200 card will still sound crappy on crappy speakers. Xonar DS link.

I have the Xonar DS as well, it is NOT crappy, I can say after trying it!

The DS has an optical out, it even comes with an adapter, which plugs into the digital out. The plug that says "Rear/ SPDIF out"

My asus xonar d2x was probably the best purchase i made in a while. I very pleased with it. So i'm sure you will not be disappointed in the xonar ds model either.
