    Get a soundblaster from Creative Labs.

    creative, guillemot, and turtle beach are good. just make sure that you're getting a recent model, and not something leftover from 2000/2001. the built-in sound chips on recent motherboards (nforce2, for example) have also been getting better, and may be a decent alternative to a card.

    ...it depends on how much you want to pay it, what you want to get out of it and what other hardware you got.
    I got a lil' studio thingie happening, using MOTU soundcard (Mark Of The Unicorn), it is actually so old that when i moved to WinXP i could not get proper drivers for it, and THAT sucks. Im thinking of moving back to 98 cause of reliability, got whacked up midi setup.
    Anyway, there is a lot of different cards on the market, from SoundBlasters to more real studio cards like from Digitech/ProTools wich requires an uber-machine, most likely a mac or something.
    But if i was to do "more simple kinda techno music", working with midi-files only, with not-so-high-end PC, soundblaster or that kinda card with FruityLoops program would probably do the work. When you start actually recording audiofiles latency comes into picture, you might need more powerfull card, and maybe uber-mac, and definately huuuge pile of money.....
    And what company is the best out of those you listed? Thats a question indeed.

    ... i know im not helping much here, put i just HAD to add my spoon to the soup. Lets mix it some more.
    Spoiler: Show

    Creative Labs have been the industry standard for a long time.

    The SoundBlaster Audigy kicks ass for speed and quality, but it's very expensive.
    The SoundBlaster Live! 1024 'Value' is very good value for money at only 30ish, with Surround capability and EAX acceleration.

    I'd definitely go with a SoundBlaster.
