Same here, ASUS Via based Athlon M/B with Delta44. Never tried to use the 
internal soundboard though.

In my opinion on-board chipsets are not worth effort. They generally suck, 
regardless of brand.

Specifically about Via chipsets, I think the days to slander them are over. 
There was a time when they did not work very well, nowdays they are no worse 
than anyone else.
