Sound cards use the universal PCI interface, it will fit. DVD drives will fit too. Your gonna have to either use their IDE cables or yours though.

Good parts for the price.

You could save some cash by going with a different mobo. The one you posted is SLI but you don't need that if your only going to get one 6600GT. You might want to add another one later though....

Not only is it expensive, the motherboard sucks IMO

Can you guys give me a suggestion?
I was just looking for one with 16x for PCI-E because they stopped making APG from what I hear.

So for the future Ill need PCI-E.

ASUS is the best manufacturer as far as mobos go?

I believe they are very good. DFI is the favorite of overclockers however.

How about that?
Anything wrong with it?
It would save me almost 100 dollars from my first mobo choice.
