[CLOSED] [UK] PCI-Express sound card (a good value one!)

Update 10th July:

My upgrade has been postponed since my CPU order fell through. So please keep me in mind if you have a sound card to offer but I'm putting this on hold for now. Sorry!

Original post:
Hi there

I am going to upgrade my mobo shortly and the new one has no PCI slots. I have onboard sound on it, but I feel like a cheap soundcard would be a good upgrade. So I'm in the market for a cheap PCI-Express sound card to slot in. I would prefer coax digital out, but would accept optical, it must have some kind of digital out and 5.1 analogue out.

I do not want a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI-Express - specifically.

Anything else, let me know what you have and how much you want! thanks

Hi,

I can sell you my spare X-Fi Titanium (proper 'native' PCI-ex) for £40. Interested ?
I think it's still on warranty from Scan.

Cheers,
