Question Best sound card 7.1

I am looking for the best sound card for a 7.1 system. I know best is not really the best to use. So top of the line. I do not care price just what is the best. It use to be all of the creative sound card stuff. Now I am not sure what it is. So if anyone could tell me I really appreciate it vary much.

Thanks guys this forum helps me out all the time.

The HDAV is just suited to audio over HDMI

For regular 3.5mm analogue outputs, there's the D2X - ASUS Xonar D2X 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
