I chose the Sound Blaster PCI 512 sound card for use with a low power, 5 speaker surround sound system (Cambridge/Creative Labs.) I mainly use this card for gaming and listening to music.
The card has separate front/rear channel plugs for surround sound speakers, a microphone plug, and comes bundled with a decent amount of software. The control software contains controls for "Environmental Audio", which applies different affects to audio output. The most entertaining component of the bundled software has to be the keyboard, which lets you play with a few hundred different instruments and effects- very fun if you don't have a real keyboard to play with.
I have not noticed any flaws in this sound card's performance, and I have not encountered any bugs in the drivers or control software.
This is a great card for anyone looking for a simple, affordable option for gaming and music. Without a high-quality speaker system, you will probably not notice the difference between this sound card and more expensive ones such as the Sound Blaster Live!

I have to say, the comment about tech support would ordinarily imply that something "happened" that required my calling them. Rest assured, it didn't. My archaic computer (Compaq PResario 5070) has its sound card built into the motherboard, and I was told by the store guys that since i couldn't pull it out I would need to go into the BIOS and reconfigure them and disable the original drivers and such in order for the Sound Blaster to work. Well, not knowing anything about my computers BIOS, I called tech support and they were very friendly and helpful. The card is working great, and has all these cool 1/8 inch input jacks that I never had before on my old soundcard. Line in, Mic, front speakers, rear speakers... I don't do any gaming, I mostly got it for home audio recording, and as you can see from the actual hardware, it's been really helpful. Great product.

I do know it is 2015 ;) This card has no drivers for 64 Bit window of any kind. If you don't have 64 bit /windows you MAY be able to get this card to work. You may be using an older computer and just need some sound out of it. It might work. Kind of over the top to suggest Ubuntu live CDto see if really will work.
