The on board sound chip is better because it is high definition and the Audigy 2 zs is old technology and not HD. If you had a new Creative sound card it would be better than the on board chip.

Thank You. Looking at a ASUS Xonar Xense 7.1 PCIe Sound Card.

Do you think that would be a good one, or do you have another that would be better?
