    Suitable PCI card/DAC for music lover

    Hi   I have to confess that my knowledge in this area is very low. I'm quite technically minded but I've only really started using my computer to listen to music in the last year.   I find that with my basic setup it is very enjoyable to listen to, but now I think I'd like an improvement...
