Default WTB: Cheap Soundcard

So last time I was in the market for a soundcard, things fell through. I'm just lookin for something cheap that I can throw in an empty PCI slot.

If anyone has anything laying around, let me know!

I have a couple of 6 month old soundblasters lying around here that I could give you for 15 bucks. Only problem would be the shipping. I really don't think it would be worth it after the charges .

Cheap and souncards aren't normally in the same sentence save up and get a good quality one rather then spending money on something the same quality or worse then your onboard.

The Audigy SE is slightly worse than a Audigy...

Also if you say that Creative doesn't make drivers for X-Fi cards, its even worse for Audigy cards..

Paid $12 shipped for it.

they make drivers for all the other x-fi cards, but just not the extreme music one, it was discontinued around 2 years ago i think(replaced by the fatality ones)
