Cool Built a computer, but totally forgot about the sound card xD

Hey guys, I was around about a month ago asking about computer stuff for building one, but when I got it build or net was down and it just got fixed, so anyways. That is the only problem I can see now, so I was wondering which one I should get. My motherboard is a Gigabyte P35-DS3R, and I would think that is all that matters.. Anyways, I need one that is fairly cheap but still good. Thanks in advance for the recommendations!

Motherboard sound is fairly good, but a better cheap one would be a Soundblaster Audigy

Just stick with onboard and save the money for something else later.

It has onboard sound? Do I just need to download the drivers or something? Because I can't play sound.. not on WMP or Youtube or anything (Excuse my utter computer retardation :P)

If I searched for years I may not find that disc. Is there somewhere I could download them online?

GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - Driver - GA-P35-DS3R (rev. 2.1)

Don't know which revision you have of the board, but I think the files are the same for all.
