For music the creative has a better SNR, but I do not think it will support BLURAY like the ALC892 will, depends on what you want to do!

Onboard audio like that realtek is good enough for that.

Better speakers and/or headphones would provide more proportional oomph to what you hear, then a sound card. . I mean you will get more boom out of better speakers than, a good sound card with average/bad speakers.

Here is a year old thread:

It's all subjective, if it's just 2.1 computer speakers it won't matter. If its a good 5.1 or 7.1 then it to many it would matter. And others not so much.

btw Try to use a newer sound card if you can, one with good reviews.

Sorry for late reply.. But some new motherboards have a pci port as well, you can just get a different motherboard.
