I would like to thank coldsleep, dndhatcher, gordon_81, NeoElemental for the help on this system and Tom's Hardware for having this great source.

After selecting the parts with your help and having a lot of fun putting it together I'm getting squashed on Battlefield Bad Company 2. The game is awesome and runs great on the system.

Here are some pictures:













I placed a bit more tight wraps on the cables and they look much better but forgot to take a picture.

There is only one thing I'm missing and that is a connection to the headphone and microphone jacks on the front panel.

The connector of the case is not compatible with my X-Fi.

The case has an HD, AC-97 connector and the card just has a flat connector. The cable on the other PC was flat.

Any ideas on how I can connect that cable so I can use my current card with the front audio panel?

Thanks for all the help.

Ed

I would connect the case jacks to the motherboard sound jack. Use the case HDA connector.

How often do you use it. I've never used mine. I have USB headphone/mic.
Sometimes it's better to not plug it in if you're never going to use it.
I have never used my front panel firewire either and when I was spec-ing out my case, I had to have one because the MB had a jack for it.

I agree with jsc. Your front panel audio will use your onboard audio port, not the soundcard.
