I recently got my new mobo, the Gigabyte P35 D3SL and I noticed the 5.1 onboard audio on it sounded a lot better than my 5 year old Soundblaster Audigy. So looks like onboard audio has improved a lot from back then, when it was a big no-no to have it enabled and a dedicated soundcard was a must. A new soundcard was one of the items on my upgrade list but seeing the quality of the onbaord card, I think I can strike it off and save some money there!!!!
