You can save quite a bit of money by going with a good onboard sound card and ditching the sound blaster. My ASUS-A8N -e has absolutley subrub 8 channel surround sound AND a optical out to hook to my so-so kenwood system and it sounds GREAT.

i put the mobo on the list cuz its the best pcie 939 mobo since the Sli-d and so fore i from dfi are the same mobo with extras.

i put the audigy2zs on the list for a reason, that onboard sound onthe mobo aint that great. i should know i used that same onboard the RealTek alc850 on other motherboards.

it will take off ease off the cpu if you use a pci soundcard instead of a onboard. you would regain like 1-4 fps back.

so i recommand he stick to the list.
