I need a sound card - the simpler the better. I need it because I have a suspicion that my on-board sound chip (Realtec) is slowing one of my applications (is very CPU demanding stuff). I do not listen to music on this machine hence it could be anything down to 2 channel card really.

The problem is that all of the inexpensive cards are chinese stock and they have no Window 7 drivers. I also looked into Asus and Creative but the latest cards have lots of features and cost too much.

Is there a simple PCI sound card for Windows 7 ? £10 price would be an ideal one :) 

Thanks!
