Will I need a sound card?

I was reading and I came across something that said if you have a high end headset or speakers then you might want to invest in a soundcard. Will I need a sound card with these parts?

    The motherboard has onboard audio. The article was referring to high-end speakers or headphones, not your GPU/motherboard. Onboard audio is excellent for gaming/listening to music/watching video etc....

    If you are doing professional work/home recording/after effects or post processing/audio editing.... then you may want to buy an aftermarket I/O multi-channel sound-card or headphone amplifier sound-card.
  6. You might want a soundcard if the ALC892 audio chip proves to be an unsatisfactory match with your gear.
    You don't have to spend a lot,Asus DG/X are good.
    Try onboard first and it might be just fine.
