Default Soundcard for Win7 64 bit: need to record internal audio (eg. "what you hear")

Howdy folks,

I'm taking the opportunity to make use of the collective wisdom here

I'm looking for recommendations for a soundcard that I can use on my Win7 64 bit machine for recording internal audio.

I need to be able to record (using Camtasia) what the screen is showing and the audio that accompanies it (eg. for the new videos that we've done for the main website, as well as the tutorial videos I have in mind for Musician and Composer.) I had been doing this before with the SB Audigy 2 sound card that was in my XP machine. My XP machine died, however, and my new machine is Win7 (which I really do like). However, the "What U Hear" feature does not work in Win7. I also sometimes use a mixture of soundfonts and sound library (GPO) for my music, and being able to record that together was quite convenient.

I contacted Creative, and they weren't very informative as to whether the "What u hear" option might be "fixed" for Win7. I'm now shopping around for another sound card, preferably less than $200.

So I'm looking for recommendations: what card do you use to capture "what you hear", or the internal audio stereo mix (I need stereo, not mono) directly from your sound card? I'd be happy to know about alternative sound cards, preferably PCI, but will be glad to explore other options as well if they fit my needs and budget.

I don't need to have inputs, as I have a separate audio/MIDI interface unit that is working just fine. But I do need to be able to record internal sound. The onboard soundchip that came with the computer does not have that option.

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.
