I have an ASUS P5WD2 Premium mobo with an integrated sound card: Realtek

I have a lot of interferences and the sound is not very clear.

Sometimes, this can be fixed by lowering the volume of or muting all
unused inputs.

Does anyone have some recommandations to buy and install an external
(usb?) card which is fully supported under linux?

What features do you need?

Any device that does not need separate driver, i.e., that works with the
built-in drivers of Windows or OS X will also work with Linux. This is
sometimes advertised as "class-compliant".
