Well I finally upgraded to windows 7 and it doesnt like my SB live soundcard. Problem is theres so many soundcards ot there that im lost. Looking to spend between 50 - 150 bucks if the price is justifyable. im thinking of a creative cause I heard they have onboard sound processing for games. Basically the sound card needs to have optical or coaxial for 5.1 and possible be decent for doing some music recording.
