alright i have a onboard sound card right now hooked up to my receiver which is 5.1

i would like to be able to watch movies on my comp, have have Dolby digital 5.1, and dts play off my comp (going through my receiver) and i would also want to be able to play non-digital media as well, say a mp3 or something like that, if i would get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16829111002 ,

yes you would notice a improvement, its a good sound card not the best but good, and all you would need its a optical cord for digital if your receiver has optical.
