... to make the transition from realtek integrated sound -> a dedicated sound card worth it?

If I were to get a dedicated card, what would be a good one for a beginner who used integrated sound all his life? I heard so many bad things about creative so I want to stay away from them. Should I get a Xonar or Prelude?

I don't mind shelling out 150 for a good sound card. That Prelude is looking really nice actually. I'm just afraid I won't notice any difference after the purchase because I'm using generic logitech speakers.

Yeah , i recommend the Prelude. Logitechs arent really that crappy , and a good sound card will defently push them to their limits. I think you will be surprised.

And with the prelude you can always upgrade to a z-5500 setup or an anolog setup and get the most out of them.

good luck!
