Cool Looking for a sound card

Hey, guys.

As you have probably read in the social lounge, I have got my Z-5300e Speakers. They are completely amazing as they are, but I want a little more out of them. So, I need your help looking for a decent sound card.

Heres a list of what I need out of one:
5.1 channel support
Vista Compatible
High-definition, not really a must but I would like to have it
PCI or PCI-E x1 interface, I prefer PCI
Reasonable sound to noise ratio
MIDI/ Joystick input, I would like to have one, but don't really need it
Full profile card, I can't use a low-profile
Last but not least, something everyone wants, a decent price. I would say less than 80 bucks.

I have been looking at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829121122 but it doesn't say if its vista compatible or not. I like that card, and it is within my price range.

They do have drivers for Vista on their site, but they are beta drivers.

Sounds good, I may just buy that card. I hope I can get the money for it, I already spend 400 dollars on a digital camera and these speakers.
