I've run into a problem in building my first PC. I'm building a new system with an Intel D975XBX motherboard and despite checking the specs for the motherboard, thoroughly I thought, I now find that it has no connector for connecting audio from a CD_ROM. How do I get sound from my CDs/DVDs? Do I need a sound card and, if so, will the sound card interfer with the 8-channel subsystem on the motherboard?
There are a few rare cases where the audio cable might be needed. I just saw somewhere where a person couldn't hear CD audio from an old game, but attaching the audio cable fixed it. Perhaps they didn't have the digital audio enabled in device manager though. :?:
