The old M-Audio Audiophile 2496 have a great reputation, for my laptop I use an external usb version of the same which does a beutiful job (Audiophile USB)

For my old Dell pc I've been real happy with an internal Echo MiaMIDI PC Digital Audio Interface (24-bit/96 kHz converters and 106 dB of dynamic range )


Both of the above internal and external cards I had bought on ebay.

I have had excellent results with the Yamaha audiogram3. It is an external USB driven device but is really flexible. I've found them used for about $30 on eBay.
