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.
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.
