Anyone Know Anything About Sound Cards?

I'm looking to buy a Sound Card.

Must have (optical digital out for connecting to home cinema systems.)

I was thinking of buying the following

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer - Sound card - 24-bit - 192 kHz - 109 dB SNR - 7.1 channel surround - PCI - Creative X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity - low profile

Can i get anything better or the same under £70.00

I'd be grateful for anyone's help who knows about this stuff.

My PC has an onboard sound chip but here's a US website that lists several cards with information about them. Find what's suitable for you and then check out UK prices on Google UK. Hope this helps you and good luck. TC.
