    I have always read to steer well clear of Sound Blaster for music production. They are more for gamers...

    I have an M-Audio Audiophile 2496. This is one of the cheaper ones in the range (about £49) but I get brilliant latency with Cubase.

    I have one of those too, excellent card for the money. It is brilliant with FL Studio. I got mine second hand as well so it was even cheaper. Would def recommend (y)

    If you want nothing fancy but just a really good card with low latency, 2496 audiophile all the way. If you're looking for more expansion in terms of ins/outs, fx and external stuff, look further but mind your wallet suddenly stretching like a vagina.
