Geez I thought the trend was going the other way... at least from what I'm seeing on the audio forums I'm on and that's where I'm going. With sound cards (like the Xonar series for example) you get a HQ DAC and a very low noise floor, which eliminates an external DAC and a preamp in some cases and a HQ CD player since you'll be using the computer for music and that will save a ton of $$$ for just as good performance. Maybe not ultra high end - but it gets you most of the way there.
