Default Sound Card

If I am making a gaming rig, I listen to alot of music, and possibly will be watching DVD's on a computer, what do I want in a sound card?

depends in the price and only you can say what you want. I personally dont need a 300 dollar sound blaster platinium to enjoy some good music if you want something cheap get a sound blaster live. go for 50-120 cnd depending on were you shop.

The original Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Series is cheap, yet can support 6.1 pretty well.
