    I just recently put together a PC with an M2N-E MB. The onboard audio sounds ok for the most part, but every now and then I get some whistles and pops, so I think I'm going to buy a sound card. The two highest rated ones one newegg are:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829271001

    My main use for this PC is gaming, but I also use it for multimedia. I'm looking to spend <$100, so I was wondering what would be some suggestions? I was going to go with the bluegears, but I don't see pins for attaching my front audio ports. Am I going to lose this functionality in my case if I go for this sound card? Would you recommend either of these cards, or should I just got with a Creative card? If so, which would you recommend. Thanks!

    Since your asking about front audio jacks I assume your not using a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system.
    If that is the case I would recommend this one.

    If you are using, or plan on using 5.1 or 7.1 in the future then go with the
    HT Omega linked in your post so you will still have the front panel connections.
