Default Does Mobo Audio Chipset matter?

If you are using an external DAC? Or does it only apply if you are using the line outs of the mobo straight into a speaker/amp. Of course we will all be doing the former and the Haswell mobos, some of them at least, have the new Realtek 1150 as opposed to the 898, for example.

Your thoughts much appreciated!

No, your USB DAC is an entirely different soundard. The only common part it shares with your onborad soundcard is the PCI(e) bus your USB and intel-hda controllers are hooked to

Great - thank you! This simplifies my mobo choices for Haswell, since I think nearly all of the new Gigabytes have the old realtek one, yet at the same time they fit in the Streacom case, whereas Asus, for example, who have the new realtek one, don't fit!
