Default HTPC soundcard with optical out

Hi, I am thinking of making my old p4 rig into a HTPC and need a optical sound card for my samsung 5.1 home theater system. Unfortually I only have a external sound card with coaxial out. Is there any cheap sound card you would reccomand, nothing really fancy, remember it a p4 .

Sure, what about the ASUS XOnar U1? It has Both optical and coax, Dolby Digital Live and DTS-C and is external USB device.
I reviewed it awhile back and it was a decent little unit for HTPC -> REVIEW LINK
