All current boards, have decent enough sound for the average user. I guess it's a matter of how good your speakers are.

As far as I know X-Fi is a pretty mediocre card when it comes to music, but I can live with mediocre when I enjoy onboard just fine
LOL target for North Korean Nuclear attack? Wow never heard that one before, seems like your reaching far to come up with negatives, might want to go buy a huge underground shelter in Kansas or whereever you live and spend the rest of your life cowering in fear of a nuclear attack.

BTW did you ever even own a X-Fi card? I for one have an X-Fi card, a SoundBlaster Audigy 2 card, and have a computer using intergrated sound, and lemme just say sound card sound are light years beyond mobo sound. Just read reviews on the X-Fi cards concerning "music". If your going to build a decent gaming system, then don't skip out on the sound ( one of the important aspects of gaming itself ), spend the 50 for decent logitech speakers and another 50 for an X-Fi Xtreme Gamer card.
