What sound card would you recommend?

Hi,
I am currently using onboard sound on my Gigabyte GA-7VAXP motherboard and I have read that this takes up some CPU resources while running intensive games like 'Toca Race Driver 2'so I was thinking of buying a sound card that is not too expensive as I have no need for the 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 surround systems.
All I need is a card that offers good sound and one that can support quadrophonic speakers i.e. 4 speakers!
Thanks for your advice people!

I don't think onboard sound is very resource intensive, but the quality is generally not very good. Soundblaster cards are usually highly regarded, and the Sound Blaster 5.1 is reasonably priced at £24.46 inc VAT click here

Audigy 2 if you want to splash some cash. If not click here as above under £20 inc del
