There are a number of fairly negative reviews for that external sound card on Amazon, so I would suggest doing some further research on it at other sites before buying.

Will do!

Currently shooting for a buy date of 3/15. I think I've come down to two choices, either the ASUS G75, if I can still get it for $1100ish in five weeks, or a customized "Clevo" model from AVADirect. Of the many sites I've researched that do customization, this one seems to have the best combination of excellent reputation, rave reviews, and very reasonable prices. There's page after page of positive customer testimonials on resellerratings.com, and it seems almost every professional review I've read of their notebooks and desktops praise build quality as well as performance for price. I can get exactly what I want - 17.3" 1920x1080 matte screen, Core i7 CPU, 660 2gb nVidia GPU, 12gb ram, 128gb SSD - for $1125, shipped. The ASUS at that price would only have a 5400 SATA HD, so I'm really leaning toward the Clevo at this point.
