Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

So I just built a new computer but the onboard sound card doesnt have all the functionality I need. So I'm looking for a PCI sound card that does the following.
Record from line in(I know, fairly standard)
Record from Mixer, such as sound from a website, etc.
Support for CentOS 5.5 x86_64
Will need to have the same functionality inside any VMs I install. Most likely Fedora but I will be creating VMs to play around with other Linux distros.
Current motherboard is a ASUSTeK M4A89GTD-PRO/USB3
Thanks. I'll check that one out. Wasn't expecting to spend 100 for one but might be worth it.
I haven't set up any VMs using xen with CentOS 5.5, having issues getting fedora to install. But when I've set up VMs using VMware the VMs had access to all the hardware. Im assuming thats the case with CentOS/xen?

Virtual machines do not access hardware directly, that would be needlessly complex.
For a cheaper audio card: I've had an Audigy SE for the last four or five years that is supported by all operating systems I have tried out during that time (Linux, BSD, Solaris, Windows). I invested in a much more expensive Xonar last year after an "expert" on this site described it as infinitely better than the more affordable cards. And indeed, the sound is better but I have exactly two or three sliders to control input and output (as opposed to dozens for the Audigy card); that's how incredibly well it is supported ...
If I make my .asoundrc file as below I can have both an Internet radio stream and something plugged into Line In and it only records the Line In audio. Now I need the same thing except to only record the Internet stream.
command: arecord -f cd -t raw -d Audigy2| lame -r - test.wav
