    I used this one in my project. I don't know how it compares in sound quality to the one you have in your post, though. I needed one for my all-in-one project, so size really mattered, and it packs in 5.1 sound with Mic In and Stereo Line In. As far as the sound quality goes, I don't have any complaints.

    I'm pretty sure it's a C-Media chipset. I don't know if newegg ships to Aussie, but you can try googling or maybe even searching on ebay for this sound card - I'm sure there's a website that sells it AND ships to Australia.

    I think most of these low-cost sound cards use similar C-media chipsets, so quality/performance should be similar. However, if size is an issue, the GWC one is considerably smaller. Yours has optical inputs and outputs though.

    Cool USB 5.1 sound card

    I use one of these in my set-up, and have absolutely no complaints with it.
    It resumes correctly from hibernation, the drivers and included software works correctly and is quite powerful (for Win XP anyway) and I definately have zero issues regarding sound quality.
