Kind of new to sound cards but I was thinking about getting a cheap one like the ASUS Xonar DG. However, I don't use headphones and only use speakers. Would installing the card make a difference? Thanks!

Currently I have the Cyber Acoust CA 3062a.

With a system like that, I'd recommend just sticking with stock sound.

I agree. Speakers have a greater impact on sound quality than the audio chipset. Until you have speakers or headphones of sufficient quality to know/hear the difference, it is a waste of money.
