I'm planning on upgrading my pc early next week b/c it can't handle bfv well, I noticed in the system requirements that the game requires a directx 9.0b compatible soundcard. What cards are out there that I should look? I don't need any 5.1 dolby cards because I don't have 5 speakers.

I'd suggest looking into Creative Labs' Sound Blaster Audigy series. I picked up the Audigy 2ZS for about $100-110. In fact, here's what I got. Also - You don't need 5 speakers to use one of those types of cards - they just support it. Just like you don't need to shove 20 pairs of jeans in to that new Whirlpool washer - it CAN handle it, even if you don't need to do it.

Thanks Padre. :) I'll have to get that one, it's now only $80 after a $20 rebate at Best Buy.
