So i don't have much to spend, but i just need one that can do Dolby 5.1 or even DTS, and well i happen to come across this sound card.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-Creative-Li-Absolute-HD-Sound-Card-SupremeFX-Used-/221021027859?_trksid=p4340.m1374&_trkparms=algo%3DUPI.GIROS%26its%3DI%252BC%252BS%26itu%3DUCI%252BUCC%26otn%3D15%26pmod%3D261024309854%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D8794867691813404082#ht_500wt_1413

I know asus makes some pretty good ones and i just want to know if this is one of them, but if not im just really wanting it for the full 5.1 experience. So does anyone have this card or even use too? Also my last question is, would i be able to use this on a pci-x 16 slot? Though i think its a 8x since its the last one on my mobo, but im not really sure if that would matter with a sound card :S

That is a Creative card that came with Asus motherboards. Pic-x is backward compatible so it will work.

Also it can do Dolby or DTS encoding fro your games but you will need to buy the software,
