I tried my speakers though, OMG!!!1111 But I have a headset for a reason, not to wake the parents at night.

If you are not connecting your heaphones/microphone or headphones+microphone into your sound card directly, or through your speaker system which is connected to your sound card, then you will not receive the sound quality that the sound card provides.
The AC97 you are referring to is the onboard sound card, and that is what is processing your sound to your headphones and microphone. You most likely have both the onboard sound and sound card running, which is kind of redundant, but it works for you.
My personal suggestion would be to trade up from your USB connector headphones to a regualr 1/4" connector headphone setup. This way you can plug directly into your Creative card and improve sound quality. However, the quality will depend on the quality of the headphones too. Your microphone should then also be plugged into the sound card. From there, I would disable the onboard sound card and make everything use the Creative card. But that's my opinion.

You can disable your onbaord sound in device manager. After looking at my own system though, I've realized that my own onboard sound isn't disabled. So I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just make sure all your sound devices are being plugged into the Creative sound card and everything should be good.
