Your rig looks terrific.
Your board has decent onboard sound. Whether that is good enough to satisfy you, only you can say.
Personally, I used to loathe onboard sound. These days I consider it quite good and would rather spend my money on better components. Keep in mind that you can always stuff a sound card in there later if you want something better.
