Obvious disclaimer aside from my signature, there was a study done recently that showed that sound cards tend to produce better quality sound than integrated chipsets.

If you already have a Xonar, and you care about getting the best audio quality, then I'd say go for it. If you're not as concerned about audio quality, then save a PCI slot and go with the onboard sound.
