the sound blaster audigy 2 ZS is really nice. I think thats the best one unless you want Audigy4 but i doubt it. Audigy 2 ZS will suit you nicely if you want high quality sound.

^^it's intergraded into my MOBO and my computer wont even notice it's there to install drivers for it, and since it's going to cost me money to get it fixed i'm just going to buy a sound card.

If you want a good sound card, go with the SoundBlaster Audigy ZS2. I own thet exact same thing and I'm pretty happy with it.
