DACs are the new sound cards.i run a soundcard! 🙋♂️ gotta have it. when i finally had to upgrade my old audigy 4 pro because my new mobo didn't have any pci slots i tried mobo audio for a couple weeks because it was suppose to be some super good this or that, but naaa. just aint the same. but i've also got a pretty beast audio setup and mess with hi-res audio and watch movies up and stuff up here too. so i guess if you were just using some little dinky amazon special desktop speakers you prob wouldn't notice as much a difference.
i do agree tho that op needs to upgrade that quad core. it's time. may even see better performance out of existing card.
