If you're questioning the quality of onboard audio, you're doing it wrong...
Manufacturers will use some fancy pants propaganda to make it seem like their higher end mobos produce better sound quality. It's BS.
Onboard audio has improved from what it once was, but it still doesn't beat independent audio processors; the DACs and sound cards(although the cheaper models likely aren't any better than onboard at this point).

Simply put, there's no significant difference between them. Just don't let the audio processor be what finalizes your motherboard choice, or you'll be paying extra for little to no real difference in sound quality.
