P55A-UD4P ALC889 audio vs audigy 4

Hi all,

I just bought a new PC with a gigabyte P55A-UD4P. It replaces my older PC that has an audigy 4 that is about 4 years old.

I was wondering about the quality of the ALC889, as onboard audio has a (deserved?) reputation of being bad.

WHat quality difference is there between the ALC889 and the audigy 4?
Should I install my audigy 4 or leave the onboard audio?
Should I buy another sound card?

I am not an audiophile, but I do like quality sound. I use headphones mostly to game and watch videos.

GIve me your opinions please?

Best wishes to all!
