I remember looking into this a couple of years ago.  The PCI card I was
looking at was the M-Audio Delta 1010LT.  It has 8x8 analog 24bit/96Khz IO
1x1 MIDI, and a digital in/out I believe.  I heard the card worked perfectly
in Linux (at least on the ALSA chart).  It's a beast, and it looks like you
can pick one up boxed (but used) for about $150 CDN.
