USB Sound Card Adapter

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop 500-410t C
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The internal sound card for the above computer, which is part of the motherboard, no longer works.  I have been told that instead of replacing internal parts, I can simply purchase a USB Sound Card Adapter, plug it into an open USB port, and that my speakers will work.  Can anyone confirm that this is correct?
