My System Specs

Default

Most good DAC's I can think of are slightly over your budget and you'll still be limited by onboard sound. IIRC the audio chipset on that board can't support higher than a 96khz sampling rate, so it might be a bit of a waste for your flac recodings.

The Xonar DX mentioned earlier and the PCI version (D1) are well under budget ($70-$80 minus $20 MIR) and should provide a noticeable difference.
