    Onboard should be "disableable" <---laf and yes you can just plug it in and it will work but dont forget to select the correct audio devices in the sound settings for windows.

    x-fi really sucks. there are plenty of alternatives that dont suck though, like the x-mysique, x-plosion, prodigy 192 or the x-meridian. all of these alternatives are so vastly hardware feature superior its not funny. driver support is also much better than creative driver support. the prodigy 192 and the x-meridian especially absolutely beat the living daylights out of the x-fi
