Sound Cards

I wonder if anybody in the forum could recommend a basic sound card. I have been given a very basic spec PC running windows 98 that has no sound card installed. Perhaps someone could make a recommendation which would save me trawling through an ocean of products. I'm not particularly technical but would appreciate some basic guidance. I'm not looking for a high spec product just something that my children can use that allows their cd-Roms to be heard. Thanks for any help...

If you look at the back of the PC is there anywhere you can plug in speakers? I don't mean the modem card if you have one. If so it may be that you don't need one. If you do, then ensure that you have a free PCI slot to insert a card. try a cheap Genius card.

I use the same soundcard that AndySD suggested. A very good card for its price
