In need of a new soundcard

So, my soundcard has blown and I need a new one.
The card I have used was pretty satisfying, but apparently creative no longer supports this one (year 2005).
It's the Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi XtremeMusic.

I pretty much wanted to have the same but apparently they are no longer being sold (neither officially by creative nor "new" by amazon), so I'll probably need a different one, whether it is creative or not, I don't mind.

  • PCI
  • no surround needed (using 2.1)
  • low budget, around 100, less if possible.
  • mostly used for -loud- music

Someone able to suggest me something?
Thanks in advance, SEN!

Oh boi. Not much you'll find better than M-Audio's audiophile line.

Apparently you can grab this for 67.

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

I'm going to kind of hijack your thread here, but hopefully some questions will be answered which will help everyone decide what a good buy is.

I've got a card like this (it says model number sc8768, but from what I can gather it's got identical parts) that I'm not using because I don't care and I'm just using onboard on a fairly new motherboard. Should I be using the sound card instead? Is there a particularly good reason to do so?
