i thought all this time that integrated sound cards are the same as those good sound cards but with less effects and sounds crappier but i didn't know that it cripples fps. IS THIS TRUE???? i saw benchmarks from MSI advertising their new x58 motherboard with Creative sound card, they benched it with crappy sound cards and make a 15% difference in games with soo many voices.

THis will obvously effect TRU if i want the best out of my gaming comp...

Where is Josef, i remember him saying alot about this ages ago. i cant remember though.

1. Never believe any benchmarks posted in Ads by the product vendors themselves!

2. Of course better sound boards provide better Hardware acceleration capabilities > Less CPU load > Better performance > Higher FPS.

3. Besides every benchmark of the motherboard can't be estimated only sound card-wise.
