You will get better sound with headphones AND desk top speakers with that sound card. How "better" the sound will be,depends on how good your headphones and speakers are. Hip bone connected to the thigh bone....Good luck.

Not really. I use headphones only. My PC is used for gaming. You will probably get better info form other Forum members that read your post.
