If you are planning on using a receiver, there is no point in getting a sound card that isn't on board (unless it doesn't have optical out) since most if not all of the audio processing is by-passed from the sound card to the receiver itself. I've had mine hooked up to an Audigy 2 ZS, two different on board sound cards, and some newer sound card whose name eludes me but all were through optical out to the receiver and i found there was NO difference in sound quality between all of them
