No, if u look at the mobo, its got a built in audio chip. u can get a better soundcard if u want, but if u want some real expertise on soundcards (i was born with a hearing disability, so im not gonna say anything about sound quality lol) talk to DJ Chris. He knows his stuff. Personally, i would just say stick with the integrated, but its ur choice

Do they have an option for AS5? If so, do that.

That Norton is not that great, and $42 is expensive. Download Trend PC-Illin from Newegg for $30.

I don't know much about thart LCD screen, You might want to research that a bit. Look for response time 12ms or under. You could always shop for that anywhere.

Overall though, looks like a great PC.
