Well I wonder about that. Is it really worth that 60-80 bucks or so for most people? I have the onboard Realtek audio on my mobo and really I have no issues with it.

I have it feeding my basic 2 speaker setup on my computer desk and then it also feeds over digital coax to my receiver for when I am watching movies and such. It sounds perfectly good to me.

Hell I can have it feeding a high quality DTS feed to my receiver while at the same time feeding other music/games/sounds to my desktop speakers and it never has any issues.

I get wanting the sound card for audiophiles and actually working with music, but if you are not then I just don't see it being worth it.
