Ok, I've been getting rid of alot of my stuff, because I need the room, but I can't decide between keeping my surround sound, or using the money I get from the surround sound system for a sound card. Its comparable to an ATI Radeon 3450 in outdated-ness, so I will only get 40$ for it.
More aboutsound card surround sound system
What kind of surround sound? If you are talking about the crappy Logitech junk, get rid of it ASAP, and get real speakers like the AV40, and a decent sound card like the Xonar DG.
