    Got about £200 to buy a sound card for my rig, It needs to have 2 audio inputs red/white or left right so i can plug my decks and mixer in. Any suggestions ?

    Yep, go for the X-Fi Elite Pro. I've got one and it has the red and white input you need.

    Side note: if you don't game, you may want to look at the EMU 1212. The Elite Pro is a more versatile card, but you are basically paying an extra £50 or so, for gaming support.
