just curious, im no computer buff so bare with me if this is a stupid question. Im looking at the picture of your mobo, and the rear of the case, and the connections like USB and keyboard and other stuff do NOT line up with each other..they are in different positions. Why?

Sound card:

yes the mobo has some basic 5.1 onboard sound, but its nothing compared th the x-fi xtreme music. also, if you are a heavy gamer, you will want this for sure so you can enable eax.

looks like i'll have to wait on the soundcard. but the motherboard will help me save a few $$ if i buy a refurbished one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130487R
