Most computers these days are built with an audio chip and jacks for speakers, microphones, and headphones, but they're not high quality stuff. An audio purist would scorn them and get an add-in audio card, or more likely spend $5000 or more on a completely separate audio system. But my aged ears can't reliably detect any difference in sound quality between the Realtek audio chip on my desktop system's main board and the set of stereo components on the shelves in my study. The only real difference I can detect is that I can crank the latter up to a volume that'll rattle the windows and make the neighbours complain.
