Most likely you have one (of the several) mixer volumes set to 100%.  
Try lowering the volumes to 90% or below.  Note that volumes include 
Master and PCM of your sound card, and there's a recording volume 
specified in Myth setup for your profile.

As far as the SB goes, I think you'll find it was a nice (albeit 
unnecessary) upgrade from the motherboard's sound.  :)
