The on board sound on my computer has started to not work properly (sound is fuzzy and mics dont work). I am looking for a good sound card for less than or about $50. I saw this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0045JHJSS/ref=as_li_s... in a different thread and was wondering if that would be a good one or if there is a better option.

I have that one. Good card. Asus's software isn't so great and the EQ is crap. I bought it cause there's sometimes my on board would kinda crash and I would get bad sounds and would have to restart my computer. But that still happens if a game crashes and the audio will be stuck in a loop. I would see if there's a update maybe 1st and see if there's no way of finding the problem before buying a sound card. Sound cards now these days are almost useless as the onboard one are so much better and there part of the mobo.

It's a good card for sound but like I said the Asus software is just bleh and the EQ band is really bad. I've posted in there forums about this but it ain't gonna happen. I did however get mine with a rebate so.
