Phym May 30, 2012 4:19:41 AM Uhhh, I chose the i5 3550 instead of the K series, and the H77 motherboard, they are meant for normal use and not overclock? And also, hows my video card? Should I get that or just a normal evga gtx 560 Ti 1gb or 2gb?

Best solution azeem40 May 31, 2012 12:27:29 AM Share They are. Modern day MOBOs have good quality onboard sound. Phym May 31, 2012 1:15:19 AM Does my mobo have it? azeem40 May 31, 2012 1:18:07 AM Yes it does. Phym May 31, 2012 2:18:59 AM So I can plug in my earphones onto that mobo? azeem40 May 31, 2012 3:38:24 AM Yes, and the case connects the audio too. Phym May 31, 2012 4:52:54 AM Thank you, but I see the audio holes are used at the back of case, not the front o.O. So the rest of my build is perfect for a ~$1000 non overclock gaming pc right? azeem40 May 31, 2012 4:53:23 AM Yep. Phym May 31, 2012 5:00:05 AM So that means I have to plug my earphones onto the back of the case? azeem40 May 31, 2012 5:01:57 AM The case has audio ports. Phym May 31, 2012 5:06:41 AM Ohh, so the mobo has onboard sound, the case has back AND front audio ports that I could use, right? azeem40 May 31, 2012 5:08:26 AM Yep. Phym May 31, 2012 5:09:35 AM Thanks. Phym May 31, 2012 5:10:05 AM Best answer selected by Phym. azeem40 May 31, 2012 5:10:41 AM Np man. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
