Just take the onboard soundcard out when you get your soundcard.

On-board sound can't be taken out... it's soldered to the motherboard.

Look under titles such as "Advanced Chipset features" "Chipset Features", "Integrated Peripherals" or "On-board Devices" and look for something along any of those lines.

Typically what you need to look for inside those menus are somethign related to sound or audio (those words should be in the name). These may be in sub-menus from what is listed above.

If this doesn't work, you could always disable your on board sound in device manager so windows doesn't use it then install your new card. But, it's always better to disable it in BIOS if you can.

Yeah, as Rudster said, the new sound card should disable your onboard.

O my bad I did not know that. I know mine came with 7.1 onboard but was in the form of a card that had like a mini pci slot on it. Just figured thats how onboard sound was my bad.

Ah, yes, Those higher end Asus boards are weird like that. They give decent sound though.
