Looks good. Will conquer BF2 You don't need a sound card unless you love the ultimate sound or do audio stuff... Lan Party's have great sound(I have an Ultra-d). You could save the money and get some other cool stuff for your pc.

GO TO A STORE AND BUY BF2 AND SAVE 50 BUCKS! Wal-Mart, Target, wherever they sell games at. Dont order it online, and pay for the game+shipping, thats just dumb. That is unless you live 100 miles away from any place. Then it would still be cheaper to drive.
