  1. You don't need a sound card at all for posting or viewing YouTube videos. A good headset is more important.
  2. Best answer
    Try it with the onboard sound first. If you then find it not to your liking, get a soundcard.
  3. The microphone looks good. It has good reviews.
  4. Not if you get a better, sound oriented, motherboard eg ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 -
