I was wondering if anyone can recommend me a 5.1 soundcard that is relatively easy to get working on Ubuntu 10.10

The built in sound on the motherboard is giving feedback so I can hear the hard drives spinning and accessing data through the speakers, I assume this would be fixed with a dedicated sound card.

My motherboard has PCI and PCI-e slots available.
