Only worth it if you have issues, I had issues with a high sound when i moved my mouse.

If you are just listening to audio, there should be no need to upgrade. Now, if you are into heavy gaming, or doing audio mixing / editing, MIDI and stuff - that's a different story...

I have come to realize that any on board sound sucks. I used to always say that on board sound was adequate for gaming and casual music. However, ever since I got this sound card(not even close to the best you can get), I have noticed a HUGE and dramatic difference in any game I play. I recently formatted my PC, and took out the sound card. I went to play a few games and was confused about the sounds(mainly object locations) as the sound card not only makes all audio much clearer and higher quality, it also positions sounds much better than any on board could. As for music, it also makes a major difference there if you have some nice speakers. Either way for me, one thing is certain: I will NEVER build another gaming PC without a good dedicated sound card.
