i have a busted sound card, and it is integrated, and i do not want to switch motherboards and i hear that some speakers have internal sound cards built in, so i am wondering whether all of them internal sound cards, or if only certain ones have one.

Have you checked your speaker connections carefully, and windows device manager for missing sound drivers?

You may just want to spend the money on a dedicated sound card. USB will produce sound through emulation software which will tax your processor even more. Sound production takes a decent amount of processing. If you get a dedicated sound card you will reduce the strain on your processor and be able to use any headset on the market, not to mention a dramatic increase in sound quality. Your processor was most likely doing all the work for your on-board card too, so you may see a noticeable performance increase depending on which processor you have. I always look at these situations as, "If I need to spend more than 20-30 dollars to fix the problem anyways, I might as well spend a little extra money and fix the problem correctly."

Putting band-aids on it like USB emulation devices only decrease performance, can add to weird software glitches, and you'll end up giving them to a friend or throwing them out when you upgrade your system because you won't want to put a slow component in a system you just built.
