    on-board SupremeFX II ADI 1988B Dobly Digital live 7.1 audio with coaxial+optical S/Pdif out. Who needs a sound card when you have that standard.

    Nothing at the moment. Will look at the gfx scene in August/September then decide.

    I upgrade from an e6400 to my e8500 in early January.

    Yeah I have about the same. No need to get any soundcard when the onboard is of such a quality.

    Last year I made the following upgrades:

    CPU: E8400
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
    RAM: 2GB DDR2 800
    HDD: 1 TB
    GPU: 9600GT

    This year I will add the final pieces of the puzzle (until next year, ofcourse):

    Monitor: Samsung 32 A550 Full HD LCD TV
    GPU: GTX 295

    I'm a bit reluctant to drop 18 grand, but there are more important things in life than money.
