I need to buy a sound card for a family member, but I'm not really sure what to get for their needs. They are mostly going to use it for music and maybe movies. Definitely not a gamer. They have a 5.1 surround sound speaker system, and the only reason they need a card is because the onboard sound does not support it. It is a newer computer though, a compaq. Sorry I can't remember the model of it or the speakers. I do know the speakers are logitech. I just need some some suggestions on a reasonably priced card that will playback exceptionally nice music through the 5.1 surround sound speaker system.

Thanks in Advance....

Or if you want something cheaper then a Live! 24bit is about half the price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16829102176
Yes, this is around the price they want to spend. I was looking at it before but couldn't decide but since you suggest it I think i will go with it.

As for the audigy 2 I was really leaning towards it when they had the rebate on it that made it like 30 or something with shipping, but i waited to long and now the rebate offer has expired.

Thanks for the suggestions....
