Sound Cards vs. Onboard Sound

Specs: Windows XP
I was going through some old computer parts and found two older sound cards. I was curious if they would perform better/take the load off of my dell desktop.

[b]The on board sound on my desktop is[/b]
Sound Blaster emulation
Audio controller Analog Devices AD1885 AC97 Codec
Stereo conversion 16 bit (analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog)
Interfaces: Internal -
PCI bus/AC97
External -
stereo line-in minijack, microphone-in minijack, line-out minijack
on the rear input/output (I/O) panel; headphones minijack on
the front panel

[b]Sound card 1 is a Creative Sound Blaster Live! CT4830[/b]

[b]Sound card 2 is a Compaq 1373 PCI Audio Board[/b]

Would either of these two be worth using?

Pretty much any add on card will be better than the onboard sound. I would go with the Sound Blaster card personally.
