Someone suggested an M-Audio card, but the cheapest one I found was $79 through new egg.

I'd prefer to spend less than half of that.

What are my options?

Im not looking to produce music, but I am looking to have good MP3 and movie sound.

What are my options for a card taht will be easy to install and not give alot of headaches?

Also, I am looking to hook up a 5.1 home theater system... and I would like to be able to hook up 2 addtional small speakers for the computer monitor.

thanks.
