Sound Card advice needed

Hello there
It's obvious that my sound card (Soundblaster Audigy LS) isn't very well support (understandable, it's a sort of limp-wristed version of the full Audigy)... so could somebody recommend a good quality, but cheap and well supported card for a Linux operating system?

ALSA seems to have problems with my card. While it does play audio, and receive from the mic OK, the one and only volume control that seems to work is Analouge Front, and the sound engine sometimes crashes when I play with the settings. I also get crackling sometimes (rare) when changing windows.

Have you checked the LQ HCL yet? There are many comments in there regarding specific sound cards and the experiences your fellow LQ'ers have had with them. For sound cards, there are at least two pages of reviews
