Been thinking of selling my Sound Blaster Audigy SE Audio card for a couple bucks, but after a little thought, I was wondering if maybe I should keep it.

My motherboard (ASUS M3A78-EM) has built in Realtek® ALC1200 8-Channel HD Audio which I've been using since I got the computer put together. Though now I'm wondering if I should use the Sound Blaster Audigy SE.

Which would sound better? Mind you my hearing is good enough I can tell the difference between listening to music on cheap head phones, decent quality head phones, and good/expensive head phones, as well as the sounds that come from electronic devices (the high pitched hum of transformers in power adapters and wireless devices, the whining that old or low frequency CRT's make, etc)

The only way to know is to try it.

Well the reason why I'm asking is because it's a pain the butt having to open up my computer, move all the wires out of the way , and then install a card and close it back up and then install the drivers.
