you could start with a musiland monitor 02 ... it´s not really a DAC (it´s an external soundcard with built in headamp ... it can´t process spidf coax or toslink singnal only usb) but it´s great! value for the money (~120$) ... search the forum, you´ll find nothing else but praise. Another plus for this little thing is, that you don´t need to ditch it when upgrading your chain, because it is also an excellent usb -> spdif transport.
Yes, forget about your onboard sound.
Within your budget I suggest you to save up 100$ more for:
Audio-GD FUN version A at 340$:
If 340$ is too much, get the basic version for 190$.
And if you need something smaller:
Audio-GD Sparrow at 235$ (version A) or 150$ (basic version)
