Well, I'm finally going to spend the money to buy a new sound card. My Fortissimo III 7.1 card is decent but it has a TON of issues with DVD audio (it won't play back most channels on my two speakers) so it's time to upgrade. The thing is, I don't know anything about sound cards. I used to have crappy onboard audio (a C-Media 8738 chip), but then I bought a broken Sound Blaster Live! (broken because neither Creative nor TigerDirect would replace it due to a bad MIDI port), and then I got this sound card. I want something decent but that isn't too expensive - and definitely nothing that does its sound mixing in software. Any suggestions? I'm looking at a $40-$60 range. Used stuff from eBay works too. Thank you.
