What does "really good" mean to you?
Please tell us more about your requirements, such as:
* usage scenario (music listening, recording, games, home theatre, ...)
* PC-side interface (PCIe, USB)
* number of audio channels in/out needed and their signal type
(microphone, phono, line, headphones, digital interfaces)
* sample frequency / bit depth
* signal processing on the soundcard (MIDI to PCM, Dolby whatever, ...)
if needed at all
