Default Sound Card Question...

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been around, school sucks :S

Anyways, I was planning on getting cheap SC upgrade for my Dell. I was going to get a 24-bit Creative SoundBlaster Live! as an upgrade. Now I have heard that PCI sound card instead of onboard increases performance, is that true?

doesn't increase performence, well it does but very little, onboard sound takes a small portion of CPU processing time, its really only a good buy if your really into good sound or using your CPU for other things, but a sound card is much better over onboard in almost ever aspect music wise.
