Hi, basically i own a Creative Fatal1ty HS-800 and i was wondering if a sound card would be worth it for me. I've had various people tell me that i won't notice a difference unless i have really expensive headphones which i can understand but feel as if it would still make some difference.

I'm not sure if this helps but my mobo is a MSI Z68A-GD55 ( with realtek and some THX tru studio pro controller

The sound card i had my eye on was the

Asus Xonar DG 5.1 PCI Sound Card & Headphone Ampifier, OEM for £20

Will i notice a difference from onboard ?

More than likely yes. As long as your headphones are not so crap (ex. gaming headphones or crappy headphones that cost less than $70), you will notice a small difference.
