Just find something with an optical output and use the DACMagic with it. I would recommend the X-Fi Xtreme Gamer, as the card you mentioned isn't actually an X-Fi card (has the chips of Creative's previous generation of cards) and thus disposes of most of the advantages that getting an X-Fi card confers.

 

Certainly, don't waste your money on an expensive sound card for your DAC to plug into because of jitter or something equally stupid.
