    I'm looking to upgrade my sound system for my computer. Probably going to be getting Klipsch 2.1 set up and sennheiser HD 280 for some headphones. I'm wondering what's a good sound card to get with these? Looking for the best bang for my buck. Less than a 100.

    If only used or a 2 channel system, try to find a Chaintech AV710. Cheap as shit and it has a pretty decent front channel DAC.

    i use a creative audigy LS card that i got about 4 years ago for about $40. It does the job.

    I like my Audigy 2ZS, though if Potty wanted to jump in he'd probably recommend something by M-Audio. I know M-Audio makes good recording equipment, so it stands to reason their playback equipment would be up-to-par as well.
