Default Re: Are All My Parts Compatible

it's all compatible.
no problems there. it also looks like a fine build.
are you sure you need a soundcard? the onboard sound is usually enough for most casual people and even gamers.
A better question will be: what are you gonna do with 32 gigabyte RAM?

I agree, Why do you need a sound card, As bikerecho said the integrated sound on the mobo is enough and you would save a bit by getting rid of it but other than that it looks to be a good solid build.

Lol, there's no reason in gods great creation I'd ever get a sound card. They're outdated, and the last sound card I pulled out of a computer was a Dell Dimension 8250 from 02' and it had no integrated sound as I remember XD. But still, if you have integrated sound, getting a sound card is like buying a chain for a dog that has an electric fence XD

Good reply YoungIT

only soundcards that are worth buying is those cards with extra inputs and other ports then just jacks.
but those are usually for business use.

The only reason I could think of needing a sound card if you have something like a car stereo for speakers

The last time I found myself a sound card was in a Compaq old desktop.
