In practical terms, they make absolutely no difference at all.  Some
on-board chips are quite bad for ground-loop noise getting in from other
parts of the board.  Pretty much anything on a PCI card will be fine.

If your recordings sound shite, it's because your technique is shite.
Or possibly your playing.  All the sound cards sound the same.
