I just got the TerraTec 6fire 24/96khz DMX LT for £104 inc. vat. Works very well and the quality compared to my old sound card is phenomenal
If you have a chance of getting this level of quality for £150, it is exceptional offer. To get a comparable or at least a close enough quality of playback with consumer grade hardware, you need to spend couple of thousand pounds at least.

Rack mount PC case is a bit more expensive. Good cases start from £150 onwards and a reasonably smart rack will set you back by another £100. You'll be then able to put the rest of your system in the same rack and tidy up all your cables.
