I really do not like Creative's SoundBlaster cards. Creative does not treat their customers well and their drivers are bad. I don't think the Audigy has S/PDIF inputs, at least not without a digital I/O module. I prefer the Asus Xonar line of cards, they're expensive but of very high quality and have all the Dolby technologies, like Heaphone and Pro Logic.
ASUS Xonar D1 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI - This is one of the lower-end cards but it does have S/PDIF TOSLINK combo port. $89
ASUS Xonar D2 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI - Their premier card, which has S/PDIF input and output jacks. $180

That looks like a good card, the Xonar uses the C-Media chips that the Omega uses. Make sure you have an available PCI slot for the card, I have two large GPU's and a wireless card which means that I had to get a PCIexpress audio card since there were no more PCI slots left.
