what can i say, sucks for you, heh. the new standard doesnt have a -5v rail cause its legacy, but if your mobo needs it, youll have to get an atx v1.3 psu or a sound card.

Or get another mobo.

True.

Epox NF4 ultra board and an audigy card then.... Hmm that way I can always carry over the card.

Great choices on both cards, but you should test the Epox onboard audio first, maybe you decide that the onbard audio it's enough and you can put that money into something else, and if you think the onboard audio it's not good enough you can buy the sound card later.

I just did a review on the Vantec Ion 2 460W power supply. It's an ATX power supply that meets ALL of the following standards:
ATX 2.01
ATX 1.3
ATX 12v
EPS 12v

And so it has a -5v line. It's also very quiet. You should see the review posted at Sysopt in a day or two.
