You might try the Fortissimo II card. It runs right at $40.
I agree. Hercules is supposed to have new drivers out this week, too. That should help a bit.
I'd stay away from Creative's cards. You shouldn't have any compatability problems, but their products in general are overpriced and have very poor drivers.
