  1. You don't NEED one, but you might want one. Depends on you.
  2. Your main board has on-board Realtek ALC892 7.1 Channel audio which is fine for most people.

    Your motherboard has onboard audio, so you don't need a soundcard to be able to hear. However if you want really high end sound you might want to invest in a soundcard or DAC.

    From what I hear that isn't the case, so just stick to the onboard sound and you'll be fine ;)
  6. I've always used my onboard which rocks. If you wanna go all the way and spend alot of money on a sound card which really doesn't make that much fo a difference go for it. but i would suggest keep the money and use onboard.

  8. My recommendation is to build without the sound card first and simply rely on the integrated sound chip. If you don't like the quality of the sound coming out of your speakers, then at that point you should look into getting a sound card. However, that's assuming the speaker is not the problem.
