Why get a sound card?

I'm building a new box and if I only care about "decent" stereo sound (not 5.1 nor 7.1 nor AD quality) why get a sound card at all? Don't most good mobos today have above average stereo DA converters?

If it's advised to get one for a gaming rig for other reasons, recommendations on brands and models? (PCI or PCIe)

Yes, my new Asus board has decent audio.

unless you are an audiophile, the onboard audio on most boards is fine
