Internal sound cards are a great upgrade if you want your games and movies to sound better – or if you’re interested in audio production. They use PCI or PCI-Express connections, and have 2.0, 2.1, 5.1 and 7.1 port configurations on their backplates. These don’t have to be an expensive upgrade, but make sure you’ve got a spare slot on your motherboard first.
Used when internal computer space is limited or when using a laptop / netbook. These external sound cards connect using via USB and provide all the features and functionality of internal units. Check individual product to confirm specifications.

PCI based audio interfaces are internal sound cards fitted inside your system. Whilst not as portable as the USB & Firewire variants they can offer slightly better latency in some situations due to the direct connection to the motherboard and the drivers having more direct control over the hardware.
