    I'm looking to upgrade my system and would like to link my computer up to my stereo. The main thing I'll be listening to is streaming audio samples from online record shops so if anyone could recommend me a budget soundcard that would have the right outputs to link to a stereo and be reasonably cheap then I'd greatly appreciate it :)

    Basically any soundcard will do. The quality of music from these on-line stores is pretty mediocre by all accounts. Something as cheap and cheerful as this for a fiver would do.

    Have you checked to see if your PC already has sound? Most PCs built in recent times have on-board audio which would be more than sufficient.

    I do already have on board sound but wasn't sure if I had the right plugs to link through to a stereo, it looks like I have the same plugs as the sound card you suggest but I wasn't sure how to link that to a phono input on an amp.

    Normally a 3.5mm headphone jack to 2 phono lead, goes from the green audio out to the phono inputs on your amp. Here

    When you put it like that it sounds really easy.
