    Look for sound blaster X-Fi extreme music, thats the cheapest card in XFi series but it has all the same feature & power of the high end X-Fi cards, except for the live Drive which u will hardly need ever

    other options are Creative Audigy 4 ZS or Audigy 2 Value

    Try sticking in a high end home theatre system into onboard sound and see the results....

    Good soundcards have features like high SNR value, 24 bit audio, DD and DTS decoding, among others. I find a noticable difference in my logitech z5500 speakers (using 915 onboard audio against creative Live! 5.1 AGAINST CREATIVE AUDIGY 2 ZS)

    @ pcworm: The X-Fi series will give you best performance if price is no bar. But the Audigy 2/4 also makes for a very good soundcard.
