I need a good sound card

  1. After 4 years(probably more) of service I have finally decided its time to retire my old SB Live Value card. The sound coming out of it is terrible and it's a real pain to get to work correctly in Vista x64. I need some suggestions.

    This one:

    looks good, but I can't seem to find any reviews on it.

    This one:

    also looks good being a true X-FI but it's a bit more than I want to spend.

    I'm not an audio freak but as long as it sounds good I won't care. It will be used for gaming and listening to music at the most. It also does not need any type of surround sound but I doubt I will be able to find a card without it now.
