I have an external audio-interface (Focusrite Saffire Pro 40), but I use it for recording and to power my studio monitors. I'd say the quality of the DAC and the power-amplifiers is dramatically better than the integrated card as it doesn't have the same self-noise and minor distortion problems, but honestly for video-games I would never bother using anything but my headphones, and you really only need a higher quality interface if you are running high-quality speakers/monitors.
