I havn't ever used the mobo, but it says it supports it, Plug the cord in and see if it works, if so and you like the sound, don't worry about a sound card.

If the mobo has DTS-Connect, you should be fine. That being said, a lot of mobo's "support" Dolby/DTS tech, but don't enable it because they don't pay the licensing fees.

Again, the audio chip *supports* DTS connect, but it usually isn't enabled. You'd have to check the motherboard manual or contact ASUS to find out for sure.
