It makes a huge difference.

AC97 audio has incredibly high latency and sounds terrible.

A Audigy 2ZS or an X-FI will make a drastic improvement in sound quality and clarity.

In no way are sound cards a waste of money.

Yeah I keep noticing my sig. I'm going to delete it. I really want something that will really pump out bass, and so far I hear that those will get the job done. I was thinking about Klipsch Promedia 5.1, but the rms on the Logitech is higher, so I'll go with Logitech.

But what do you mean by "sloppy bass"? Does it get distorted when you turn it up, or is it just inconsistent?

By Sloppy I mean it's rumbley, earthshaking, powerful, and messy.

Good. Exactly what I need. Yeah this rig has Realtek AC97 audio, and if you turn the speakers up loud enough, you can hear them chirp to your processor's actions.
