Should You Buy A Sound Card?

I personally like the idea of removing the sound component from the system altogether by using an external USB DAC, although things can get more complicated if you want surround sound.

آ…buying a sound card has always felt more like a gamble than an investment. At the same time, I know audio snobs with thousands in equipment and all-FLAC libraries, and I'd like to believe they aren't delusional -- surely there's something to be experienced beyond my basic setup. But I mean, just how much better can music, movies and games sound? Enough to prevent buyer's remorse?
