With the ORION you have an excellent RX, your soundcard however can let you
 Always use isolation transformers, for example the SignaLink SL-1+.
There are many types of units around. You can sometimes get away without
isolation transformers but if you get some then you've got them for ever.
 If you are serious about digital modes get a good external USB soundcard
such as the Creative Audigy 2 NX or MP3+. The difference compared to a
standard mothercard soundchip solution can be staggering, also by having an
external card you will not pick up noise from the gubbins inside the PC.
FWIW with my IC-7800 I don't need isolation transformers because I have an
optical connection between the radio and Audigy 2 NX.
