I use reason and fruity loops mainly with casual gaming.
I want to make music aswell as enjoy music and sound.

previously was using
zotac 9300 itx
logitech speakers
Previous sound was alway crackling at higher volume
old system using onboard sound with zoom r16 as my primary input for electric, accoustic guitar, bass and mic.
zoom has been playing up refusing to boot without pc connection so trying to fase it out.

Your onboard sound is good (it's the same as I'm using right now with a 95 snr). Personally, I'd use your only PCI-e slot for a video card.
