Looking for a good & inexpensive sound card
I need a sound card suitable for gaming, not too expensive and, off course, with a good Linux support. I seen a Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer at a good price, but I'm not sure if if I should use current drivers (are they still beta or what?). If anyone has good experience with this card I'll be glad to know, or if You can recommend some other product this will be nice too.

I can't give you a suggestion but I CAN say don't go with creative. Creative spent an absurd amount of money developing the Vista drivers so they have abandoned the Linux beta driver completely, no support at all, no future development.
Alsa has started work on it but that was about 6 months ago and still says the same thing "in development". OSS has a driver release but they have also abandoned future releasesBodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
