I am looking to get an external sound card for my macbook pro.

Umm...for OS X i would have to suggest the X-Fi. It is also useful in vista if you want EAX. First I would check to see if that card is compatible with Leopard though but I can't image why it wouldn't be.

X-Fi sounds cooler :(

I don't think it would really matter though. If their both compatible then It wouldn't matter that much unless one of them have some special feature.

I use a Audigy 2 NX. Stereo output is great (better than windows) and the digital in/outputs are found. Line in too but this has shows bad quality. System profiler detects right name.
