Default Nice sound card for z680's

Hey all i am on my way to pick up some logitech z680 5.1 speakers i found on kijiji. I am looking for a good sound card to hook them up to replace my onboard audio ALC889a. I don't know very much about sound cards, but i know i want a digital hookup to make the most of these speakers. I have digital outs on my motherboard, so I don't need them on the back of the card.

I'll use this sound card for listening to music, watching HD movies (as soon as i get that 24" monitor) and playing lots of games. I am not even sure if I need to have a dedicated sound card, so if you agree with that notion, don't hesitate to share your opinion.

I have cash, emt, paypal, i can write cheques and get money orders too. I live in kitchener and i will drive up to 45 mins to pick something up provided it'w worth more than $40 (the cost of my fuel lol guzzlez)

oh yes i also have a soundblaster audigy 2 to trade if you need it.

I'm selling my ASUS Xonar D2 very soon for a good price and it works AWESOME with the Z680's (I happen to have those too although I would never part with mine). I would go to a sound card if I were you. The difference is more noticeable when you have good speakers.
