Do I need a sound card with my motherboard?

I have a motherboard coming in with a ton of computer parts because I'm building a computer for the first time. My dad built his and he was going to help me out, but he moved after we ordered everything. The mother board is the ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Socket AM3+ Motherboard, and I need to know if I need a sound card or if the motherboard doesn't need one. Thanks!
