Default Sound card question

I'm looking to get an audio card, and I'm not looking for anything special. I have onboard sound, and the only thing I use my sound for is playing music on the PC and playing games. But, I could care less about the sound on the games. Should I get one of those $8.00 cards, or will the onboard suffice? Also, I notice that on my mobo and (if i get a soundcard) it has several colored inputs. If I want to put a surround sound type of thing in my room, do I need to buy a SET of speakers? Or could I buy like a couple different ones, and combine?


the old system...
EVGA GeForce 6600GT
Enermax Whisper II 535W PSU
1.2 TB
1GB Ram
Chaintech VNF4 Ultra

onboard sound will be sufficient enough, but if you have some nice speakers then you should go for a soundcard.
