Default New Sound Card

Im 95% my recording hardware is broken so I guess I need a new sound card. I dont need anything good just something about as good as what I have now. I have no idea how to find out what I have. I dont know if theres any compatability sound cards have to have with anything but if there is I dont know what I need to tell you.
Thanks

Assuming you are running windows:

Start>Run>Dxdiag

Look under the 'sound' tab and it should tell you which card you have.

Isn't Sigmatel just integrated audio? I know they do integrated sound, MP3 players, and are just getting into TVs, but I don't know of any actual sound cards that use their chips.

Yes, that would work, but you can get muuuuuch cheaper if you just need it to sound like what you have now.

Newegg.com - Open Box: Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - OEM

Something like this would be better than what you have now.
