Have a look at this:

http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-XtremeSound-Sound-Card-XS71/dp/B000CFSL4A

then this

According to the review, there is a Linux driver.  I don't know how good it is, how to get it working in Vector, etc., etc., but this might be someplace to start.

I think this depends on your needs.
If you are planning a home studio and capturing analog sound, you should go with something low latency and hardware full duplex capable (you can play and record at the same time). There is some nice boards in the 200 / 300 us$ range.
If you want something simpler (and cheaper) I like this one http://store.m-audio.com/index.cfm?page=templates/product_detail&PartNumber=9900-50901-00
Less than that you have the Audigy cards.
In any case, you have to look here: http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Matrix:Main and here: http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php/Alsa_Preferred_Soundcards
I always liked the m-audio products.
I gave to my brother a Maya44 Pci card from Ego-Sys because it has not linux drivers, it is cheap and good enough (it has phantom power and some nice features). The alsa guys are working in a driver now, so I anticipate a family fight  >:(
