Default Upgrading Sound Card, HELP!

Okay, well I need a new sound card for my 2nd comp. But here is the problem, I believe it is onboard sound. But, could I buy a PCI sound card, and just plug it into a free PCI slot, install the drivers, and it would work? Or would there be conflicts between onboard and my new card?

Any info would help, thanks!
