I am building a new machine and am looking to purchase a graphics card in the next 30 days
Processor - I7-980
MOBO - Gigabyte GA-x58-UDR3 V 2.0
Ram: 3 -G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR (24 GB total)
PSU - 750W unsure make yet
The Mobo has a audio compnent to it. Back in the day you needed a sperate sound card. Do I need one now for playing games with 5.1 sound or for music or should I use the cash for something else on the machine? I am in the US.
