I did not put a modem on it, u said u were gettting a wireless high speed connection. Some else please check over the config to make sure i didnt miss anything, its very possible i did. When its ready, enter it into Monarch's config for the desktop at this link:

p.s i noted that you didnt have a sound card picked

if i dont have a sound card this means I will have no sound correct.

i want to be able to use my 2 channel speakers.

naw, the mobo has an integrated sound chip, as do practiclly all mobos. Not as good as a real soundcard, but unless ur serious about your sound, you dont need to get a card. i get by fine with the integrated chip on my MSI K8N Neo4-F nForce4 mobo

as for modems, they look the same to me, so get the cheaper one
