I like the Asus cards. You can get its 7.1/5.1 cards for little money.

So what do these cards do that a standard mobo can't?

Not a lot these days.
So it's not really worth it, then? Ok.
Still worth having speakers IMO.
Gets annoying having to put your ear to the PC.
That looks decent, yeah.
If you want a Xonar DG i have one i took out of a pc. Good budget card especially if use headphones.

I bought a Xonar DG a few weeks ago and it is much better than my onboard (realtek alc889) sound ever was.
Simple things like having sound from spdif and headphones simultaneously make setting things up much easier.
If you get one, some good drivers can be found here.
