Essentially, are there any good ones out there?

I'm going to be embarking on a period of time where I'll have my old laptop for company, and its Realtek sound is rubbish. I'll be listening to music predominantly, with the occasional movie. I won't be producing music or playing any games. I'd prefer a PCMCIA card as I have a port free but am open to USB suggestions.

Budget is unlimited but nothing silly; nothing more than £60 which is roughly $100.

The last time I posted this question two suggestions were given; the Edirol UA-1EX which doesn't have analogue headphone outputs, and the M-Audio TRANSIT which is USB.

Asus have thrown their Xonar USB U1 into things as well and it appears to favour well with reviewers.

Edit - sorry if I've posted in the wrong sub forum, I wasn't sure where to create this thread.
