yeah the 8800GTS is around $300 but if you decide to spend $30 on a sound card you can use the rest on the vid card.

But if you want to get a great sound card then I'd go with
vid card - 7800GT
sound - x-fi fatal1ty

but to be honest a sound card like that is overkill for almost everything.

My x-fi sounds awesome on music, when it works, the drivers are as buggy as hell, creative dont give a toss even though i spent a fortune on it. Im an audophile a geek if u will when it comes to music so i can really tell the difference, i had a creative live 5.1 before this and i can def tell the difference.

you should be able to hear the differnce. Especially on games, movies etc.
But of course speakers have a huge effect too.

But overall I don't see the point in spending a lot of money on a sound card, unless you really need it (some professional stuff) or you have way too much money on your hands.
