The main onboard soundcard is used for everything else, connected directly to my TV. I am very interested in the M-Audio 2496 as it seems to offer good performance and gold-plated rca connectors rather than 3.5mm jacks, for a good price.

I have the M-Audio Delta 410.  Sound quality is excellent.  It does
take a somewhat "special" .asouncrc file to get the S/PDIF passthrough
to work, but once you have that, it works great.
