Not really worth having a sound card fitted unless your speaker system is very good . Motherboards have excellent sound built in http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm The power supply might be excellent quality but its marginal for that build Reply to Outlander_04 Related resources Required Specs for Building a Gaming PC - Forum Building an Extremely Cheap Gaming PC for My Brother.
