Has anyone purchased an external USB sound card (5.1 channel)? After some quick research, I found a few for $60 to $150. Is there anything cheaper?
Does the USB sound card require a separate power supply?
The Creative one does - very power hungry, like all their hardware.
Is the installation of external sound card complicated? Or is it just plug and play?
The built-in drivers in the latest service packs for 2k or XP will drive those devices fine, they just won't have all the extra features that the drivers and accompanying software "enable".
