I would go for a more professional soundcard with stable ASIO drivers.
You can also use an external soundcard: a USB or Thunderbolt soundcard will work too.
some interfaces you should consider: Steinberg UR / Focusrite Scarlet / RME...

Thanks bbelius, my set up is such that I don't need to record any live instruments I just use the PC to create virtual performances with VSL and sibelius. The good thing about the M-audio deltaphile 2496 was that it ws so cheap. Would you alter your recommendations?

I would still buy a descent audio-interface with good native ASIO support, to profit from stable and good sound as well as low latencies during live input. The cheapest Steinberg / Focusrite interfaces cost around 90€.

I would go for an interface with MIDI input, even if you don't need it now.
