please..someone..laptop audio card/interface help!!!

hey there,
I have recently bought a p4 3.02ghz laptop, 6ogb hd and 512 ram.
I run sonar 2.2xl and reason (rewire) plus a bunch of plugins (reaktor 4 e.t.c.).

I know my built in soundcard is awful, but playing audio (and using more than one plugin-mainly reaktor) causes my sonar 2.2 cpu bar to get near critical!!
like i said, my onboard soundcard is AWFUL.

Will getting a new external soundcard reduce my cpu load?I mean its a 3.02ghz p4 for gods sake!!my hard drive is near empty and i hardly have any other programs running. Do audio interfaces count as external soundcard??If i get one will it reduce my cpu load?
Im not worried about losing portability i use my laptop at home.
Looked at the echo indigo, but i still would like an interface, as long as it fixes my problem. I spent a lot of money to get a good setup but this is sooo annoying.
Sorry for all the questions!any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
