Post which sound card should i order next week?

ok so i updated my HD 3870 x2 to 8.2 Catalyst n now my onboard audio wont detect my speakers thinking they r either microphone or line in. I just updated the audio too but didnt do anything. No matter what i do Realtek audio wont detect anything in speaker out. So i have to get a sound card now n the question is which one?

Newegg.com - Creative 70SB046A00000 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series - Retail

i like the fact it has X-RAM to help the CPU, but costs almost double of XtremeGamer.

Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail

i want this one n do a rebate. If i get this one, then im also gonna get 2 x 512mb Crucial Ballistix Tracers so i can 3GB, understanding that games now r going to 3GBs, which Hellgate: London n Assassin's Creed recommends.

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

now if i buy the XtremeGamer w/o X-RAM n Tracers, then the price will be $138.86, which is enough for me to buy.

which route should i go with?

EDIT:

off topic, but i told my bro that if i hook my HD 3870 x2 to my 1080p LCD HDTV, the sound will come through that because my video card has a sound chip in it. He claims sound cant product through the HDTV n i say it does, who is right?
