From what Ive read and heard from people the Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro seems like a awsome deal for 200, not to mention the convience of the external hub with multiple 1/4 jacks on it. Its what I ordered for my system, I do a great deal of gamming and recording now and then so it seems like the best of both worlds.

i was looking for somthing a little cheaper though, preferably under 100... its just for recording LP albums to mp3's on my computer, so it doesnt need to be studio quality. any ideas?

Terratec and M-audio cards generally have better converters and lower noise. It depends on if you plan to use soundfonts and EAX 3 for the Audigy, but you can save some money and get better quality from manufacturers who care about music performance.
