Unless you have a laptop the answer is yes you can fit a sound card and disable the onboard sound in BIOS.

Will you benefit? Certainly you would expect an improvement in sound but a lot depends on what sort of speakers you have got and what programs you use that involve sound.

I put a sound card in my sons comp when he had onboard sound. I never changed the bios and it worked ok. The card is 5.1 and he connects using speakers that were about £20. The card was only £15 at a computer fair.
