Hi, I'm getting a new PC with an ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard that has the above on-board Realtek sound (7.1 capability - I have 7.1 speakers).

For gaming/music is that OK, or should I go for a sound card - cheapish reccomendations welcomed!

I've previusly had Creative cards that have been OK, current Creative Audigy 2ZS, but that's staying with the old PC.

Thanks

When it arrives, if the sound quality is good, then you've saved money. If it's not, add a sound card.
