Default Cheapest sound card with SPIF input?

I really don't know too much about sound cards but what would you guys recommend I get? I'm planning on connecting my Xbox 360's SPIF output to my rig to play the sound from my PC speakers.

Looking to spend ~$80, but I guess I'll pony up a little more if it's worth it.

This is just a suggestion as there are other options as well. Go for the Auzentech X-Raider and either buy an overpriced toslink cable locally or a decent one from monoprice.com.
