    I have gone from onboard to a first gen Audigy and i can really tell the difference even keeping my crappy speakers so you should have the same experience mate.

    Went from the on board on my DFI UT250 to an Audigy 2 ZS and there was a definate improvement.

    That's with some Cambridge Soundworks speakers that are ancient!

    If they're the same as Cambridge Audio... my Dad's still got one of their amps hooked up, must be 20 years old and sounds amazing.
