Hi there, I own a 2.1 Empire PS2120D and Sennheiser HD 595 headphones. Considered this setting, I'd like to know if there's a soundcard capable to give me a sensible improvement of sound quality over my old Creative X-fi Extreme Music.

Here's the facts:
- i listen mostly rock music
- only 2.1 or headphones, no surround
- the card must be PCI and not PCI-E
- the cheaper, the better

So far I considered these models, sorted by ascending price:

- Terratec Aureon PCI 7.1
- Auzentech X-Plosion 7.1 Cinema
- Auzentech X-FI PRELUDE (but it's too expensive)

Could someone please give me any advice, or suggest a better model? Remember: the goal is to noticeably improve the sound quality over a Creative X-fi Extreme Music while keeping both my lungs. If possibile.

Thanks a lot.
