Hercules Fortissimo III (should be around $45).
Even cheaper: Hercules Muse 5.1 DVD (around $30 IIRC).

at newegg.com the audigy oem (which is use) is $50..
audigy 2 with soldier of fortune 2 and hitman 2 (full versions) is only $100..

i would get one of those two unless you have some holdover grudge against creative.

Yeah, just don't but CREATIVE, unless you want poor quality and driver/hardware/OS/game issues.

My Duron 1300 eats P4's for dinner. Oh, the Celerons make a nice snack too.

You must be living in the past because my audigy has none of the above issues.
