Well just four normal Altec Lansing speakers with a pretty bad altect lansing subwoofer

EDIT: Well for that game Crysis there's a check to see if you're computer can run it along with telling you the different components your computer has, and for my "Sound card" it says
Sound Card
Minimum: Yes
You Have: Avance AC97 Audio

The Avance AC97 Audio is referred to as the driver but it doesn't mention any sound card name... If I have one I'll just use it for my new rig if not than Ive lived fine without one

Why? When there is like $19 difference. Why wouldnt you just go for gold??

Yeah I see what you're saying zedman. And for the Sapphire Radeon It's a $20 difference for 1gb video memory than 512mb, is it that much better also?

You'll have an integrated soundcard on your mb usually, so you should be all set. i've never had to buy a soundcard.
