I take it you've never seen Mafia 2.

It's barely noticeable in any game I have ever played.

I'd say it's a waste too.

If anything i'd say get a budget sound card as some games actually get a few FPS more per second with 'em. And in Oblivion it's almost game-breaking without one. You can also get better sound support for alot of games(less graphics) if it has well supported drivers. This is especially true with emulators.

Worst case scenario you get barely noticeably better sound quality, fill up your board so it doesn't look as empty and you get more ports to hook stuff into. Even if it only helped by 1% performance wise it's better than a Physx card that makes dots have bloom and potentially WORSEN performance.
