what are you talking about? LOL I am looking at the 7900GTO by EVGA, it is a video card.

And I highly disagree with the sound card and onboard comparrison. Because whatever sound card you friend bought was a piece of junk.
There is a huge difference in onboard and a card. Just read some reivews on a couple on newegg.
