Damn Newegg has good deals too. I went with what I posted before I read anymore on the thread. I ordered last night... kinda wondering if I should of waited :\ Thanks for all the information from everyone though. I appreciate it a lot! Hopefully my new machine will run games quite well, because that is a big part of what I want to do

The high definition onboard sound will be okay for gaming, but if listening to music, a higher end PCI board in my opinion is an excellent buy.

The X-FI Xtreme series is good (Extreme Music can be picked up for around 60, but, if you have more cash, the Auzentech has one for around 120 which offer better drivers/better support for optical, etc connections, which also has the X-FI chip).

Basically, nothing beats the X-FI for gaming yet, but like I said, onboard should be okay if thats what your using it for.

Well I do constantly listen to music on my pc and just bought a $200 THX verified sound system for my computer. I don't edit music or work with it at all, but I hope for now the onboard sound card is still going to sound good loud because I am out of money to spend now:P The order should come in 3 days with a $20 delivery option I chose becuse they didn't charge any money for shipping to begin with wich is cool.
