Default sound cards

okay
as some of you are aware i am building my first pc
i have this bb kit
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...033&CatId=2405
and as of right now
i have 2 of these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130319
thats all i have installed for now
and ive been looking at sound cards
and im going to go with a 5.1 sound card and speakers
here are the speakers that i will get
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121012

and now my questions
2 different places
different cards and prices
are these 2 the same?
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...oductresources
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102010
and obviously this would be better then both of them right?
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=2687630


and the last question
will it fit?
im not concerned with it fitting on my mobo or in an expansion bay
i read the review on newegg.com
this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102010
and this buyer named mmcduff said this
"Look at the picture carefully and don't be a moron like me. This card isn't meant for the average atx computer case. The metal facing is half the distance of most pci cards. Of course, you can take it off like I ended up doing, but that is sort of lame."
so yeah
that has me very concerned
what does everyone else have to say about my pc build and this sound card
and his issue that he had with his
thanks for all of the info

Default Re: sound cards

ive been looking for a sound card aswell and the Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio is my fav atm for the price.

from my research i have had people saying its wicked and well worth it with the sound quality you get.
