I feel like this isn't it though, I tried 1 of the x-fi external ones a while ago & found it to be no good.

Buying a good or different headset on the other hand, will give you extreme differences right away.
I may be on the top of my head here but it's just what I have experienced or "heard" through the years, buying soundcards and mp3 players yet not noticing changes in sound other than the omission of "hiss".
I currently have the X-fi xtreme gamer fatal1ty ed. just for the record.

What you do get with an expensive soundcard is silence, no background noise.
However I have never really felt any different connecting my hifi headsets to creatives soundcards vs onboard audio like nvidias "soundstorm" etc.
Invest money in an expensive headset to get good audio, then buy a soundcard if it's on sale later.
