How often do you STARE at your case? You could pick up some typeR stickers, maybe get some racing stripes, and a simulated Car Phone antenna, neon underbody kit, and paint it yellow, that otta add a couple GHz...

But seriously man, if you are willing to spend $50 to make your computer LOOK BETTER, yet you have NO SOUND CARD, I think you should be spending it on something FUNCTIONAL for your PC...

FUNCTION > FORM
Yea that's true ..

do you spend more time looking at your computer screen and using your computer or staring at the actual case.

If you don't already I would get a nice gaming grade mouse. I have an MX518, best wired mouse ever and you can find it for 30 something at newegg. I paid 45 w/ shipping and it is worth every penny of it. Or you can get a decent headset for gaming. Also does anybody know how a Sennheiser PC 150 headset sounds with an X-Fi?
