I saw a best Vid card for the money guide on Tom's, just wondering is there one of these somewhere for Soundcards... I'm looking at spending b/w $50 and $100 if you have any creative suggestions

Sound cards are really user preference, I think.
While one person thinks on-board sound is all you need and sounds great, the next will think that only a $399 card will do and on-board sound is horrid. I guess the thing to ask, is what are you expecting and what are you going to be playing through your speakers? And on that note, the speakers are a big part of it all. A $399 card with a $59 set of speakers is a complete waste.

for gaming i would go for an xfi card the only problem is the software is junk but the hardware is some of the best if you dont mind the headaches

For a budget of 50$ you'll get a better performance from your onboard sound chipset
