Help needed: PC hardware config with MIDI interface AND a PCI soundcard

  1. Hi
    I'm new to home studio config with a PC, so forgive me if this question
    seems trivial to you.

    I want to buy a new PC and set it up with an MIDI interface card
    (contemplating a Roland MPU-401AT or Korg OASYS PCI). But I also would like
    to install a "normal stereo" PCI sound card for gaming purposes etc.
    (contemplating a SoundBlaster Audigy 2). Operating system will be Windows XP
    Pro.

    Can anyone tell me if this config with both cards has any generic config
    problems attached to it? Do I need to use any specific software or hardware
    config setting, or will it just work straightforward?

    And more specifically: Can anyone tell me if any of the above mentioned MIDI
    interface cards are a poor choice for a home MIDI studio. Is there something
    better out in the market? I don't mind spending extra money; first priority
    is for the gear to work hazzle-free.

    Thanks in advance

    /P
