MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD – 74.99

The only things i'm missing now are a soundcard, mouse, keyboard, and speakers. I can come up with a mouse and keyboard pretty easily but if you guys have an suggestions for a decent soundcard and good speakers i'd appriciate any suggestions.

That's a very nice computer, for $600.

How much you willing to spend on teh sound card, because the intergrated on mobo is still great. Here are some nice speakers.
