Yes. Much better. I have a DG and it's worlds better than any onboard sound. thumb.gif

I would have this moved to the soundcard section of the intel motherboard section also. This isn't really the right place for it. This is more the home audio section. thumb.gif

Generally yes. It is hard to measure and compare them though since the motherboard is somewhat recent (it is up to you in the end if you feel the money was worth it, the headphones are also the determining factor here as well). Technically speaking you will encounter a VERY minor performance increase in games because the sound card will take the sound offload processing away from your CPU.
