    Sound card...


    Well, I just got 20 dollars, and I figure i'll spend it on a new soundcard (cheap, obviously)

    So, i was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions.
    What I'm looking for:

    1. Something under 20 dollars
    2. Preferablly something i can buy locally (walmart, best buy, circut city, staples, target, etc.)
    3. Something supported very well by both the OSS and ALSA drivers. (If someone has a card, and has tested with both, that would be great)

    Being in my price range, and having support under opensound system, and alsa are the most important.

    Thanks

    Go to tigerdirect.com, they have them listed as low as $6.99 plus shipping. One huge word of warning, and pay attention here: if you buy from tigerdirect, test the equipment before the 30-day warranty expires. I've gotten bad parts from them before.
