He doesnt want a sound card for music making he wants a gaming sound card for games. I agree with you on the music making parkin_m and you would be right, but I was just giving an example on music making cards. He doesnt want a music making sound card. The creative Audigy2 and X-Fi are great for games.
If I was to buy right now I would get a X-Fi with the Logitech Z-5500 series speakers with the 10 inch subwoofer. (I know its 5.1) that sub booms loud. Its a little too much for the average user though.
The cheap creatvie cards do suck, The Audigy2 platinum series and the X-Fi are good cards and everyone has there preferences, good or bad. I havnt ever bought a cheap sound card so I havnt had any problems ever with creative.
But let me tell you if you like dvd movies and play the next generation games omg the Z-5500 speakers and subwoofer matched with an Audigy 2 or X-Fi are amazing.
