A sound card is simply the component that produces audio on your PC; sometimes it is "on board" ie built in to the motherboard. The quality of on baord sound has increased a lot in recent years.

How much you will have to pay all depends on how much you want to pay and what you want it for - a decent surround system can be got for about £50 but you can get them from £10 (or less) up to a few hundred.

IF you give more details of what you want, someone will be able to suggest a suitable option for you.
