Generally, no. The sound card only provides a standard output signal that is used by "amplified" speaker systems. The volume level is controlled by your speakers.

Same way with the headphone volume, a set (standard) output is used for analog headsets.

Guess you'll need a sound system with an added soundcard otherwise it will be a waste!

But if you already have a Kit, yes it could be better sound with a PCI-e Sound card (if you don't want the stock motherboard one).

You can increase your actual overall sound output by using in the sound parameters "loudness equalization" also.

how do I increase my volume even more?
