My System Specs

If your motherboard has the TOSlink connector already, you don't need a soundcard. If you only plan on using TOSlink, then I'd buy the cheapest possibler soundcard that has one since all that output does is pass through so there is no sound quality difference between low end and high end soundcards when using that output.
