I think that you can have as many as you like but can only use one at a time!

Make sure that your onboard sound is disabled in the Bios otherwise you will get two lots of the same sounds...:-)

If it's the reverse, disable this device from Device Manager (sound card Properties, General tab menu).

Good though some onboard sound can prove, the Creative will win hands down...:-)

Providing the speakers are up to the required sound output quality...:-)
