Default Ordering soon...

Ok, so I'm probably going to order a Logitech G5 and G15 soon, and also I'm ordering some speakers and maybe a soundcard. But if I did get the soundcard, it'd be a Audigy 2 ZS, and I'm getting the Logitech X-530s. Would the ZS perform better than the onboard sound of the DFI Lanparty UT-D? Or would it be better to use the onboard sound of the mobo?

So, it wouldn't be worth the $145 for the Audigy? Does the Lanparty mobo support 5.1 or whatever? I don't know anything about speakers or sound.

the onboard device should be just enough but if your getting an audio card you better get a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS

Too expensive for me, I guess I'll stick with the onboard sound then. Anyone have anything bad to say about the Logitech X-530s?

If you give me the money for it, then sure. Otherwise, I can't afford it.
