Onboard vs Dedicated Soundcard & FPS in FSX?

Recommended Posts

I'm just remembering back to when I bought my first computer with my own money back around when FS9 came out, it was a trusty P4 2.8Ghz.with a Geforce MX440 Graphics card and maybe 1GB of RAM. :biggrin:

 

Back then the onboard soundcards weren't great and shifting over to an Audigy 2 ZS PCI Card gave me a nice little boost in FPS.

 

I know that the onboard cards have evolved a lot since then and are much better quality, but as far as FPS go in FSX, would adding a soundcard give me the nice little bump I saw back then, or are the onboard cards pretty decent these days?

 

Are most people using an Onboard Card or a dedicated Sound Card?

I am using both - one for MCE and ATC, one for environment. Neither of them gives me any boost in FPS.
