    I am thinking about using my PC as a temporary sound processor for my HT. Can someone point me some of the best 5.1 or 7.1 PC sound cards?

    Thanks

    The Audigy series from Sound Blaster, has several different cards in different price renges, that do 5.1 and up to 7.1 surround.

    I have the Audigy 2 ZS Platinum. It costs about $200 at Best Buy. Probably find it cheaper online. It handles up to 7.1, and sounds great. I think they have a 5.1 card at Wal Mart in the $50-$60 range.

    Good luck! Let us know what you end up getting, and how you like it.

    I'm a big fan of the chaintech - it rocks and it has a great price.
