    I'm sure this is beaten beyond death but I did a search and didn't come up with anything useful.

    So basically, what would be some good sound cards for a computer with vista 32bit? I want optical audio out but my motherboard doesn't have that.

    Also 5.1 would be nice.

    Thanks dude. That was actually one of the 3 cards I bookmarked earlier today on newegg's site. The other two are $105 and $80

    Which cards? If you are going to use digital output for everything there is no need to any other card.

    Well all three are all based off the same chip. Can't imagine the drivers will be all that different.
