Which one is better? One is onboard sound, which I've heard isn't that great (although most boards don't have SupremeFX), while the other is from a sound card that was designed a few years ago. After building my system should I bother to transfer the sound card? My speakers are Harman Kardon Soundsticks II in case that's important.

The Xonar is much better and those speakers are able to make the difference.

A dedicated sound card will make a difference if you are into music and all, but for gaming I have to say that an explosion really doesn't sound much different on either. I have played guitar off and on for years now and really love a dedicated sound card for recording and all,but it is overkill just for gaming and the everyday stuff.

Thanks everyone :)  I might just compare the Rampage III Formula's SupremeFX to the soundcard, but am definitely transferring the Xonar since I listen to Itunes often. I have also noticed a considerable improvement on my current XFX Core2 Quad board (see it is time to upgrade, I wont even bother with Sandybridge).
