Actually an audio card can be nice if you use your pc to listen to music though this will require atleast cd qaulity minimum and headphones better then crap like beats or a good speaker set to really notice.
What do you base that on and what do you use? Curious.
If your getting a decent one they'll have a good built in amp for more demanding headphones much better sound isolation than onboard for a few now inboard audio is fine if your not an audiophile or using cheap speakers or marketed crap like beats so for the avg person it's not needed. And currently I'm not using a soundcard I have an external dac.
If its elitist to want decent performance, accountability, and class knowledge from the people you play with... SIGN ME UP!
