This is my headphone:
Sony MDR10RNCIP
http://Amazon

Those two sound cards are what I am looking for(home, no outside)(~$35):
ASUS Xonar DSX 7.1
http://Amazon
or
ASUS Xonar U3
http://Amazon
Which one is better? Or there is better choice for under 35 dollars?

if I buy a PCI sound card, then I have to buy a 3.5mm audio "white" cord that is 6feet(no 3 feet)
which one would you recommend that is lower than $7?

I like listen to the Japanese anime musics
like those:

Haha for some reason I can't ever take anime fans seriously.

For music It's better to invest in a DAC+AMP instead of an internal sound card. Like this, for much better results if the headphone can handle it:

My sound card has a 600 ohm headphone AMP port.

I got the SB-Z and got it for $99 when I bought it. Well worth it since it can power my headphones and my speakers with a change to the software (it has a normal speaker out and a dedicated headphone out).

OP, I have never bought anything on BF nor do I know if there will be better deals on sound cards. I do know that the Asus Xonar DSX is the better quality sound card you have posted. You can wait till Black Friday or even Cyber Monday but there is no way to give a 100% yes that there will be a better deal.
