I am looking to update my sound on my desktop. I'm having problems with my audio stuttering/skipping on me and I think is a problem with my onboard sound. I also would like to get something that has better volume output. I am hearing-impaired and if I can get higher volume through my headphones that would be great. Can somebody recommend a good card for me.

Audio stuttering/skipping could be a software issue. Though in my case, I found out that the sound card gets fudgy and if I change the frequency and bit rate in the Sound properties, it fixes it. If you're not concerned however about audio quality, you could consider a USB dongle.

Also usually the output of a sound card is "fixed" at line level, so if you want it louder, you're either going to have to drop the impedance of your headphones (I could be wrong), or get an amp.

Could my memory be causing the skipping?

It could be, but you'd have to run out of it first.

Not sure of your budget, but HT Omega Claro cards are fantastic. Your ears will feel the difference.
