Default EVGA x58 Classified on-board sound quality?

Hey guys, I'm in the stages of finalizing my build, but I'm wondering what the sound quality is like on this mobo. If anyone has it, could you please inform me of your thoughts on the sound quality?

Thanks alot!

If you have $400 to spend on a motherboard, I'm sure you can get together enough money to get a high end sound card to go along with it. But onboard sound has come a long way. There is definitely a noticeable difference between onboard and dedicated sound with a decent set of speakers or headphones, but the onboard sound is usually an acceptable quality for most people.
