...ditto. You'll be able to find out what onboard sound you have.

Unless you already know what motherboard you have.

You say Nvidia? If you have an Nvidia nForce chipset, then you're onboard sound is probably the Nvidia Audio Processing Unit using Realtek AC'97.

...Especially if this rings any bells:

Since you've formatted your PC, it's best that you install your chipset drivers.

They include audio drivers for your onboard sound.

Go to: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and select Platform / nForce drivers in the first box. Then select the nForce 4 chipset depending on your system, in the second box. Then select your Operating System in the third box. Click Go to download your chipset drivers.

When it's downloaded, run the installation package.

Oh...and about getting a new soundcard, the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Soundcard will certainly woop your onboard audio...!

What is your standard for stereo speakers? I won't tolerate anything less that two 12" 3-ways.

It depends, if you are an audiophile, you'll hear a difference, but if you think MP3's sound good, then you probably wouldn't hear a difference...
