So my motherboards Realtek ALC887 soundcard died. Tried everything even reinstalling drivers. Currently very poor performance recently only right side worked but now it kinda healed the left side so i adjusted it so they are the same. I'm looking for a new soundcard around 50 ish . Better to go for external because I don't have much space in my case
if the soundcard was plugged in the gpu's fans would be blocked. I would looking forward to get any recommendation from you guys since i know zero about soundcards and don't wanna risk to get a soundcard with awful buzzing. Maybe its even better to just buy a new motherboard because I have a A320M
(also let me know how maybe I can fix my own on-board audio)

PC specs
Ryzen 3 3200g
gigabyte s2h-a320m-ga
16gb ram 2400mhz
rx570 Sapphire 4gb
240gb SSD (main)
480gb SSD
1tb HDD
600wt 80+ gold
Windows 11 ( wanted to experiment i could try to go back to Win10)

If you don't require some ultra high sound quality, ordinary and cheap USB sound card would be fine.

There are some u+SB adapters with even better sound than onboard ones,
Like this one for instance
