[SOLVED] how to research supported sound cards

I have a desktop with a Creative Sound Blaster Titanium X-Fi card that was not supported in Linux for some time. I seem to remember that Creative is not terribly helpful with respect to Linux drivers. Now I woud like to buy an external sound card to provide good sound for a business system.  Creative Sound Blaster G1 and G5 look promising, but I don't want to buy something that does not work in Linux. I searched for these devices in this forum, but I found nada. Is there a source for supported sound cards?

Duh, I should have remembered that Debian has many wikis. Thanks for the reply.
