I have a need to run sound for one of my servers, and am looking to fit a PCI sound card. Does anyone have any recomendations. The onboard sound is enabled, but the drivers don't work, so a 3rd party card is the answer, Just need to know what works.

    Can't go wrong with a Soundblaster. If you can find one, get something like an SB128 PCI. Works fine in Windows 2003 as the chipset is detected by the built in drivers (I have one in an old workstation I am using for a DC at home). Remember to disable the onboard sound before installing the new card.
