Should I use onboard sound?

I have a MSI K8T800 motherboard, and was wondering if, for gaming, I should just stick with the onboard sound, or get a audigy 2. My friend suggested the audigy, but I hear some onboard sound is just is good. It would be nice to save the 80$, but I dont mind spending it if it is worth it. thanks!

  1. What speakers do you have or planing to get?
  2. Go with the onboard for now. If you like it, you saved yourself $80, if you don't like it, get the Audigy. At worst you'll just be trading good sound for crappy sound for a few days.

    Some day I'll be rich and famous for inventing a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet.
  3. If you not worried about surround at all or if you only have 2 small speakers then just use the onboard. Onboard sound has come a long way from what it used to be.
