Sorry I don't quite get what you mean, was that "No. On-board sound DACS are good enough" or "No on-board DACS are good enough" and I know that you don't particularly like the Logitech X530 5.1's but wouldn't I need a 5.1 sound card For them? And also, what can you tell me about the ATI Radeon HD5750 GPU? I think it's around 100-125. Not that I'm wanting to downgrade my GPU, I just saw one of these on a Friends Forum and I read the description and they seem great, is that GPU comparable to the GTX 660?

I was saying no you don't need a sound card. Most onboard audio is capable of 7.1 output. Your 530s will be fine with the onboard on either board mentioned.

The 5750 is rather slow compared to the 660. Lets put it this way, it's slower than a GTX465. 465 - 560 - 660 if you get that. It's a few gens old and not worth 100-125.
