Are there pretty much any difference between onboard realtek Sound cards and the creative X-Fi titanium sound cards? In terms of sound quality is it better by alot?

Discrete audio cards can provide superior sound quality but only worth it if you have good speakers.

How do we look see if the speakers is good. The watts? Frequency? What about headsets

Watts and frequency response have no effect on how good a set of speakers are. What speakers do you have? Do they sound pretty clean to you and are you someone who notices the difference in sound quality? If not, its probably not worth it to you to get a good sound card to go with your speakers.

Exactly, the make and model are most important. I'm guessing by asking this question and not knowing what speakers you have, you do not need anything better than on board sound.

I have no Sound card and good Speakers yet.But when i use a Old speaker(which i dun know the model) on realtek HD audio.It sounds pretty good for music.
But nothing much in gaming.While i use a Creative HS-450 Headset i can hear footsteps from the left or right. Firing a bullet seems like it Echos in the surrounding. Best i sound quality i heard so far.

So can you recommend me any speaker for around 70 USD? Or is the Creative T6160 a good speaker?
