I heard the new realtek alc1150 onboard card is pretty good actually,will it sound good with Microlab solo 6c?I'm kind of an audio person and never used on board sound. The heresy!
But I agree it's better now and acceptable for most people. You can always get a sound card later on, specially if you're on a budget.
Good thing is audio doesn't age like video does, and a good sound card will last until it disintegrates.
