    I'm just using the Soundblaster Live 24-bit external. Works great and its not expensive at ~$45. USB 2.0 powered and has good options for input and output. Also has a remote IR in, so I can use it with my PAC-SWIX for my steering wheel controls. (Just need a creative remote....)

              Heres the link to soundblaster's comparison chart:
              http://soundblaster.com/products/pro...ct=10702&nav=3

              Looks like the main differences are the NX supports AC-3, EX 6.1, does 7.1 3D Positional Audio, and has a SPDIF IN, where the Live 24 does not. Nothing that I would really think would make a difference in the car.... but thats just me.
