I build my PC a few weeks ago and have been adding small tweaks here and there.
For sound I found a nice one and I think it even allows for MIDI recording (not sure if I would use that). What is the true advantage of going to a good sound card over integrated sound. Surely you wouldn't noticed listen to MP3s. Would you notice playing games, watching movies? I already have a old but great speaker system and I can only get sound out of two speakers due to integrated sound

My second concern is heat I've decided to leave the stock fans in as well as my CPU cooler but there is a 120mm port on the front of the case for an intake fan. there is also a "reactangular" slot on the back for a fan of sorts but I never saw a rectangular fan.
How can I be assure the front 120mm fan I get is an intake fan
how can I be sure that I get the correct "rectangular" exhuast fan
