Sound card recommendation for digital audio

I'm getting ready to buy an HDTV to set up with my computer as well as a nice sound system in the next few months. Apart from onboard sound, I'm only really familiar with Creative cards and want to get more insight on a wider spectrum. What card would you recommend for digital audio output (probably optical) that (obviously) works well with linux. All connectors on back, no front panel. Thanks.

Athlon64 3700+
2 GB PC3200 DDR
FC4 (probably upgrade to FC5 in near future)
