Default Supreme FX III vs Add on sound card

Hi all

My RIVF has Supreme FX III onboard.. Just wondering if it is worth disabling and sticking a sound card in. I play FPS games with require sound.

If a sound card.. what one?

Sound cards are better but for gaming you not going to hear a big difference unless you need a good headphone amp which the original Asus stx would be best suited but isn't the best for gaming

I got a decent headphone amp (Burson Soloist) and multiple non game (no mic) headphones (Audio technics).

Just want to know if I will get better performance machine wise and audio output. I have got an ear of sound so I can hear differences
