Default Need Help on a New Sound Card

I am looking for a new sound card, my limit is $300. I just want a very good quality card that produces alot of good sound, I am planning on hooking it up to an 7.1 Onkyo Home Theater via optical cables, so I am looking for great music, and game audio. Any help is appreciated.
