I first saw one of these models on www.bestbuy.com. It was a 24 bit sound blaster live card connected to the pc via usb. I think this could be a good idea to go with because I have a fairly powerful video card (nvidia gforce 6800 ultra) and i don't want anything to get in its way. I have heard of people experiencing problems when their video and sound cards are close to each other (and i only have one available pci slot). But, do you think that any latency in sound would be experienced do to the usb connection.

What do you guys think is a better solution?

here is a link to the page on best buys web site for this card

by the way, the price is the same for the pci model and usb model of the same device, so that is not an issue
