Asus Crosshair V onboard audio

I just got an Asus Crosshair V AM3+ mobo to replace my fried MSI 790fx mobo. It comes with what seems like a pretty decent onboard audio card, the SupremeFX X-Fi 2. I already have a discrete soundcard, a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtremegamer. I was wondering if the onboard audio is a step up from my sound card, or if i should just stick with my discrete card.

  1. i would test it yourself, but i would probably stick with the creative card as it will take the processing of the audio away from the cpu

    You mostly won't notice any difference but since the comparison is between an onboard solution and a dedicated card, my recommendation goes to the dedicated card. Just make sure you have the correct drivers.

    assuming the OP runs vista or seven, the soundcard will not offload the CPU, since neither OS support harware accelerated audio
