i use a normal integrated sound chip and im happy with it. Dont need no fancy sound from my pc and a extra card will make the clutter in the case even worse.

I have an nVidia SoundForce or soundstorm whatever its called that comes with nForce2 mobos, but I dont use it simply because I already had a SB Audigy and I am not going to chuck that out after what I paid for it. :p

why get a decent sound card? hardware acceleration! if you play games, EAX/EAX2 is damn cool. the nforce2 MCP supports it too, though.

Unless you plan to record music using your PC an onboard soundcard is just fine.
I personally have bad experiences with onboard sound cards and video, it tends to break faster (at least for me).

Take a professional PL stereo cable (not the cheap once, the better more expensive once) , connect it to a decent amplifier and spread some speakers around the room.

Here your all hardware accelerated.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
