Hey everyone, Is it really worth getting a sound card? The built in one on my Asus P5N-d seems to do the trick.

I've heard that you can get better fps if you have a sound card installed, is this true.

I was looking at the Creative SB X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Sound Card, its runs about $100.

Is there that much of a difference?

Personally *I* don't think it matters that much but I'm what you would call a casual gamer. I'll go through the latest greatest I've gotten in about a week and fire it back up fewer and fewer times till the next one comes along. I just play at the highest resolution I support and don't break the bank just to top everything out. But if you needed the best there is you wouldn't be asking would you? $100 could be better saved toward a better video card.

If you have cheap speakers it really isn't worth getting a sound card.

If you're pretty happy with what you got, don't go for it.
