External sound card for laptop?????

I have a Laptop running windows XP, which I run PCDJ Red and Traktor as mp3 mixing software. I have an internal soundcard which works fine, but i obviously need another soundcard to cue tracks (in headphones). Can anyone advise me as to minimum requirements for an external soundcard, and hopefully recommend some possibilities. I quite like the look of Creatives Sound Blaster mp3+, but unsure if this will work? Thanks in anticipation.

Surf to the website of Creative (www.soundblaster.com) and check for the minimum system requirements of the Soundblaster Extigy.

forget the extigy, its too bulky, has a low signal output, and requires a separate power supply. Go for a maya usb soundcard from audiotrak. Different places have different prices, and it depends on which country ur in. I'm in the uk and have a lot of choice. I'm using the audiotrak 5.1 usb and its a gem. I also have two channels to record with. the 5.1 has been superceded by the 7.1 that has no recording options, but u should still be able to find some 5.1 if u need it.
just run a search for maya usb which is from audiotrak.
did I also mention it fits seamlessly into pcdj?

Here you can find also firewire solutions (mostly for professional use).

Good question! - I have a small Netbook running windows XP, I need an external soundcard too... In my case I would like to use a controler/Midi keyboard (for music) not the "click clickclackclack" one... to drive software synths on Fruity loops with Netbook, for performing live gigs on stage...I would like to rather use the old standard MIDI in/out 5pin socket outlet directly on an external soundcard to overcome latency I experience over USB, as the Netbook does not have a decent sound card with MIDI in/outs. Can anyone advise "Us" as to minimum requirements for an external soundcard to get good quality audio output to a mixer (for music) not the "drrrrrr...drrreouw"one... & the option of Midi in/out on the external device? - I would add that its got to sound quite professional for on stage audio output into master mixing desk...thanks!... any advice is welcome...

Hi and Welcome!

I'd recommend to check shops that sell stuff for musicians and see what they can offer.
Thomann.de is such a shop in Germany, perhaps you can find similar stores in your country, too.

Yes, I can confirm that thomann.de is a good choice. Not only do they have a german shop, but they also have shops across europe like the UK, France, Spain etc. Just visit the German store for the links.
