MSI Z87-G45 Motherboard Sound vs Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional

Which would be better, and do you know where I can find the specs out on each? I'd assume my current sound card produces better sound. Keep in Mind I don't have my new Haswell CPU and Haswell Motherboard yet.

It largely depends on what you do with the sound and how it is set up in your sound system. What do you listen with and how is it connected?

It's connected to a Logitech X-530 5.1 surround sound speakers. I use my speakers to watch youtube vids and play video games.

Since the X-530 only connects with the three miniplug connector (green orange black) it means that the speakers have no preamp, so the soundcard is doing the preprocessing of audio; your X-Fi will likely give you the better quality sound. Whether the quality of the speakers allows you to really tell the difference is another issue altogether.
