You haven't said which card you're intending to buy, and what it will replace. There's no way to answer your question.

If the onboard sound is a low specification the card may well be an improvement, but considering it seems to have been developed when a Pentium II was an entry level system, I wouldn't have high expectations.

Hi, I can not say about that card never having used it.

However in general

1. make sure it has drivers for Windows 8. It needs to have drivers for the windows You are using all the way to the latest Windows in case You decide to upgrade.

2. Make sure Your computer meets the hardware and software requirements as to CPU, Memory, Windows version, and Motherboard slot.

 

from their website

 

new upgrade driver to support Windows XP/Me/2000/98.

This sounds like a old model to me. What happens when You want to use it in a newer computer? I do see they list drivers for newer Windows but only at the bottom of the page, Why did they not upgrade their description. It seems strange to me. As long as Windows 8 is out and they only have a Beta driver?

 

Good Luck

Roger
