Hello everyone.

I recently upgraded my home computer from one that had died to a Dell
XPS 710.  I'm very happy with it except that it came with a Sound
Blaster X-Fi sound card which is not supported in any way, shape or
form by Linux.  For now I've slapped a SB Live! in it and it's working
fine, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a "good"
sound card for Linux.  (for under $150)

I've got a nice set of 6.1 dolby speakers and It would be cool to hear
some high-quality sound out of them.
