You might need a bios update for the mobo to support the e8400. So, dl it now, and have it on a flashdrive ready to be flashed.

haha, when you get the manual you can look it up in there.
flashing bios is just resetting your current bios with something new. You can go to gigabytes website, and under support type in the model number of your pc, and they will have downloadable bios updates. it wont be hard once you get your motherboard, and the manual can really help a lot.

Take it from me, I didnt read mine

and yes, your mobo comes with onboard sound.

and for a cd/dvd burner, it is really up to you, but here is a good one.
Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner with LightScribe - Retail
and if you dont like it make sure the one you get is SATA, not IDE. less mess
