Not for long, the ones we or they in fact are building for you are much better and that case comes with a crappy Power supply. be patient and get exactly what you want. And onboard sound is an I qoute "Ok" for some. but over time youll want to upgrade to a sound card youll notice a difference.

You could -- but the video card is a POS. Just get the one me or anybody else here recommended, and you will be set.
