Actually the onboard sound of an intel ICH4 should work just find.
But, in terms of quality: yes, get a "real" card. Any old Soundblaster 64 PCI 
from the junk market will do. If you need 5.1 or so, have a look at Terratec, 
fairly good boards for a decent price.

You still haven't told me what version of Kubuntu?
