Got a great deal on a refurb dell with PCI-Express Videocard with DVI out :)

(Just a bit over $600 shipped)

Now I need a sound option for movies and games in Dolby. Are there any Nforce Based sound cards? What are my options? Or will I have to get a Soundblaster and hook up the speakers through the seperate connectors on a Soundcard?
