Ok, this is actually a setup problem as most internal audio systems offer direct monitoring. I just tried it with the Realtek internal audio on this system and there is no delay.
First, under Recording Devices/Default Device/Properties whether you're using Mic or Line in... under the "Listen" tab.... you should NOT have "Listen to this device" checked.
That should get rid of the delay... now you have to go find the Direct Monitoring volume control for whatever input you're using.
Open Control Panel, then "Sound" Select "Speakers' and then select the Properties button then select the LEVELS tab.
These levels should let you monitor your guitar directly with out any delay, right off the preamped input and before the A/D converter.
So, sit there, play your guitar while raising the level of the inputs until you find which one controls the direct monitoring.. probably Line-In (Blue) or Mic (Pink).
Adjust to suit.
