Well, I honestly think what you have there is a pretty good card.
If you're serious about an audio upgrade, you're going to have to shell out a bit more than $60.
I suggest you save up and wait for some good deals (Black Friday, perhaps?) on some great cards.

Keep your eyes open, I bet you can pick up a Xonar DX in your price range come Black Thursday.

I'll be certainly keeping an eye on TigerDirect's "Pink Friday" for a card. Newegg has some pretty good specials as well. A lot of the ads are coming out for deals. If I can find a better card for $60-$80 I might pick one up. Thanks for the recommendations.

I'm in a bit of the same boat as well. I'm currently using an X-Fi Xtrememusic card I picked up second hand years ago but am considering getting an X-Fi Titanium with Christmas around the corner. From what I've read it's a good card, a bit more than $60 though I'm afraid.
