Better sound out of laptop mini jack or soundcard headphone mini jack?

I have this soundcard/mini interface: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


I'm gonna do a live performance soon, the only sound coming out is from my laptop, there's no guitar, I don't know which output I should use, the one from my soundcard (headphone jack) or the one from my laptop? Thank you

I get way less latency with my audio interface than my soundcard. So - I'd go with the interface, but you're the one that uses it every day so you must know which gives you better performance?

Alright, I just thought it was one of those things you can't really hear unless you know your stuff, and I don't know my stuff. Someone told me I would sound better through the interface for some reason or the other, but it's just a cheap guitar interface not really designed for playing beats through big speakers so I was doubting.

I say trial and error. Give them both a shot and see which one gives best performance and latency . Can't hurt to try

For completeness sake I would also try ASIO4ALL with the laptop's built in.
