C-Media makes various onboard sound chips. See its website:

I used an onboard 8738 chipset for about four years before being given a Soundblaster Live!

The difference is sound is not all that obvious using my IBM 2.1 speaker system, although the Creative card does provide a somewhat more full-bodied sound.

However, the C-Media provides remarkable sound quality for a chipset that can be acquired in PCI card form from around £5 to £10...:-)

The website has/used to have an audio demonstration package which includes a helicopter flying both in front and "behind" - the chipset's 3D simulation is very effective and realistic.
