Sound card?

I'm looking to buy another sound card. My current one is a C-media 5.1 card, which has worked well in the past, but now never seems to want to cooperate in my system. New drivers and tweaked drivers don't help either.

My budget for one is quite low, and I stray as far as possible from Creative. What are my options here?

Turtle Beach is another one I have seen a lot from though I normally just go with Creative since they have always worked for me. From what I can remember they are much cheaper than Creative for the most part.

Azzy, you can get a Turtle Beach OEM PCI card for around $25 but I haven't heard great reviews. I'd stick with Creative unless you're hooking up professional equipment.

Ive had nothing but issues with creative hardware in the past.

Sad thing this Cmedia card is not working right.. I bought it for $15 3 years ago, without missing a beat. Even after registry sweeps, driver wipes and other stuff it's still not running correctly.

(my USB 2.0 card works fine though)
