There is no such thing as a good 'soft' modem it uses your CPU to emulate a modem and drains a lot of CPU cycles doing so.They are slow at downloading at unusable for online gaming and much of today's streaming media, having said that if your budget will only go that far any 'conexant' modem will be as good as any other. As for updates, the only update on the horizon is a flash update for the new V.92 standard allowing greater bandwidth for uploads, most ISP's dont look like adopting it and in any case, soft modems are not upgradeable.
Save a bit more and get an external modem, you wont regret it.
