2: You may notice a difference with onboard VS offboard, as well as onboard sound uses your CPU power

Id go with the onboard sound if i were you. The difference u might notice with an expensive soundcard probly wont be large and a cheaper sound card probably will not be any better at all.

Also atr MSY's site u donmt actually need to become a member just click on the links and youll go through anyway

Does which mobo have intergrated sound , but either way they both have intergrated 7.1 audio and im not sure what ram your talking about when you say its 600mhz

plus if you want to search for the best prices on parts this site is useful just type the name of the part in

It's not bad, I guess you are willing to pay 2k for a computer. I don't think you need that much money to get a good computer.
