yes youll get both an improvment in sound AND framrates (dedicated soundcard withhardware acceleration will take alot of load off the cpu) i have an audigy 2 ZS myself with creative 5.1 speakes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif im never going back to onboard!

Agreed. I replaced my Creative SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 with an Audigy 2 ZS and both fps and sound fidelity were improved.
