Yes, PCIe soundcards are still being made and Powercolor's Devil HDX is up for review on Overclockers Club. As with most new cards this one features three OPAMPs which can can be removed and swapped with another to change the sound that is sent to your headset or speakers. On the back are a 124db rated 6.3mm headphone jack, left and right RCA jacks, Coax output, and an optical output. The daughtercard sports 5 standard analog 3.5mm jacks to give you 7.1 surround sound support if you have the speakers for it. It is about $160 so make sure you have ears that are good enough to deserve high end sound, for many users this might be a bit of overkill.
"Setup as a stand alone solution, the Devil HDX gets to play in the best of both worlds with 124dB rated performance from the parent card and the option of running 7.1 sound through the addition of the daughter card. Here is my only beef with the Devil HDX. I know these are options that add cost, but when cultivating a brand it would just add to the package."
