Well not quite, I will have 1 PCI slot open, and 1 PCI express x1 the bridge could go over the sound card and wouldn't hurt anything I think. (since it's not connected)

Kinda am into Audio, been recording/resampling with GoldWave, but mainly I just want it clear and some control over Bass (too much causes recordings to suck)

As for speakers.. I wanna get some good ones... I mean like... Play Bassy High Volume House Rattling Audio... like.. when Transformers crashed onto earth, it sounds like it's happening in my backyard, ya know? Also.. reliable... don't wanna be able to go full sound and full bass 3x before it blows.. ya know?

Kinda thinking these speakers would work.. not sure - Logitech X-540 70 watts 5.1 Speaker - Speakers

If you want good audio I suggest you start small and work your way up. A good stereo system will put you in the hole after you get your pc. First get a midrange sound card or an X-Fi off of ebay. Then buy a pair of these.

Then you can work your way up from there.

I recommend hitting up the audio section if you want to do things right.
