Default sound card required

Hey guys,

I just rebuilt my computer so I can not only return to my old games but so I can also play some new ones like BF3/BF4 and Arma 3

I was reading up on the system requirments for those games and they all say that I need a sound card to play them.

for the last 7 years or so I have been using the onboard sound on my mobo, so I dont know what sound card to get. I only use head phones (link below)

can you guys please let me know what sound card i should buy

my current headphones
Amazon.com: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset: Electronics

my new mobo is this one
Amazon.com: ASUS H81M-E ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150 Motherboards: Computers & Accessories

thanks for any info you guys post

On board sound card IS a sound card, absolutely NO need to buy a add in sound card, on board will work fine, I play many of those games along with others and the on board works just fine with all of them.
