This is the closest I could get to the ALC861 spec's(which is the audio chip on that motherboard). Look in page 64, Output Impedance is 100 Ohms. I'd ask you to try the headphones out on your existing platform, then try the same pair on a donor system with a better audio solution. If you can tell the difference, then you should invest in a sound card. If you can't tell the difference, that's money saved ;)
