Suggestion for Sound Card
I'm not looking for a really, really good sound card like one of those X-Fi, but a pretty decent one that will off-load my processor from handling too much (i have integrated right now) in Source games. My budget is $100 max, and I don't want a crappy one that's like 4 years old, but one that is actually worth keeping if I upgrade to M2 mobo and processor next year. Also, I won't be using any surround sound system, just a standard 2 speaker set, or might be using a headset. Thanks.
P.S., I searched on Newegg, and found that there are 2 interfaces for sound cards: USB and PCI. Which gives the better performance?
