It has multiple I\\O connections. X-RAM, a dedicated sound processor, the software is great. Has been known to improve your gaming performance by upto 10%. The sound quality is second to non because it doesnt have any of your motherboards background noise on, and the codec is much better than the common AC '97.

This is creative too. It doesnt have X-RAM or a fancy drive bay thinger, but it will give you better sound quality than the onboard and take some strain off the CPU.

Anything is Great compared to the onboard - lol. I hate my onboard now. I've disabled it in the BIOS.
