Well my computer is currently sitting on my table in pieces. I was gutting my old computer debating on which parts to trash or keep. I have my old Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz or my motherboards on board sound. motherboard=Z68P-DS3

Your SB Audigy has the edge over you Realtek onboard but unless your output devices can produce the full frequency that both sound chips are capable of then you won’t be able to tell much of their differences.
