you should edit that
white man's translation: that's (real) (my) (black peoples),but (Nvidia's) (SLI) in my (opinion), isn't worth ("feces" = nothing)
but shizzles usually means that you agree with someone, i.e. fo shizzles
the term to replace b1gapl's "shizzle" should be "shiznat", which really is worth nothing

ok... here's a question: the MSI P6N 680i MoBo claims to have Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Audio chipset onboard.
Newegg.com - MSI P6N Diamond LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Motherboard - Retail

Would this task the CPU like typical onboard sound, or would it be more equivalent to the actual X-Fi Card's performance? If it's the latter, then I'd only need one PCI slot, and no audio card.

wow...that is unnecessarily expensive for a motherboard. IMO, the Platinum already has a good enough audio chipset to do the job.

Well I'm already planning on buying a Creative Soundblaster Audigy 7.1 sound card to eliminate the CPU consumption of onboard sound. Also, it has 6 SATA ports, the 680i, and an integrated chipset cooler. Yes, I recognize that it is a lot more expensive, but my question is would the X-Fi chipset provide quality sound without the CPU drain normally associated with onboard sound? Because if it doesn't, it's not worth it.

agree on ditching these:

XFX MB-N680-ISH
ASUS P5N32-E
ABIT IN9 32X-MAX
GIGABYTE GA-N680SLI-DQ6
ASUS Striker Extreme

don't get the p6n diamond(its using x-fi extreme audio which is rebranded audigy cards... i read this on the internet not sure if its true tho....) .... get a regular p6n sli-fi, and buy an audigy card... u get better performance for a lower price
