Default New Soundcard

My friend needs a new soundcard, what information should I ask him to copy of his System Information in order to find a compatible one? Thanks, Ivan.

well the soundcard will most likely be pci, and every mobo had pci slots so tell him to get this one- Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Sound Cards

its inexpensive but effecient and i personally have used it before and it works great.
