I just bought a turtle beach X1 headset, and i was wondering should i stick with onboard audio or get this

would audio be any better/how much better

and how much system resource would it relieve on my e8400

Your onboard should be just fine, especially since you are only using a headset.
I would simply try it first for a while and see if you are happy. But honestly, unless you are hooking up a high end set of speakers that you want to drive really loud, you aren't going to notice much improvement over your onboard.
As far a system speed or making your processor any faster, using an add in card over the onboard will have no notable effect what so ever.
