THX TruSound VS. Creative X-fi Fatal1ty

I recently built a system with the MSI MPOWER Z77 Motherboard. The built in sound is quite good, but is it as good as my X-fi from an older system? Which should I use, since I could use either?

Edit: I am using Creative Labs Gigaworks T40 speakers.

    Your motherboard uses the realtek 898, their top of the line codec. But I recently chose to go with a x-fi titanium over a realtek 898, because of all the customizations you can do like the crystalizer and stereo expansion. However, I've got it hooked up to a 7.1 surround system.

    I'd use the onboard for music or movies, and go with the x-fi if you are a gamer.
