Sound card recommendations?



I'm building a little P5/200 box for my kids to play Reader Rabbit (which
unfortunately runs only under Windows - Wine can't handle it) and am trying
to decide whether to:

  1) Buy a cheap sound card for it, or
  2) Give them my old ENS1371 from my workstation and upgrade to something
     newer.

I use ALSA for sound.  I almost never game, so all I really need is
something that can play back a PCM stream decently.  Now, my current card
works reasonably well.  Is there anything that upgrading to a newer card
would get me?  Better quality?  More simultaneous sounds at once?  Better
ALSA support with nifty features I can only imagine?

Any thoughts?  Recommendations?
