I was wondering about this today, there was a point when building a new computer meant having to buy a sound card to hook into the motherboard. But with most modern boards sound cards are built into the motherboard.
What kind of advantages do modern discreet sound cards have over their on board counterparts? Is there a huge difference in sound quality can reproduction?
Hello everyone! I just have a quick question about the graphics card and motherboard I am getting for my build. The graphics card is the MSI AMD Radeon R9 270. The motherboard I have is the Asrock 970 Extreme4 AM3+ socket. The graphics card is PCIe 3.0 and the motherboard is PCIe 2.0. Would I put the graphics card in the PCIe 2.0 slot or one of the regular PCIe slots? Thanks!!
I would like some advice: I would like to buy a sound card pci express compatible for ubuntu studio 14.04.1 x64 bit.
I listen to Italian music, foreign rock and heavy metal and dance music, the sound card I need to hear it with a home theater system powerful enough and of high fidelity, then the board must have both analog outputs for both music and outputs digital movies in DTS and Dolby digital.
As the title states I'm in need of a socket 775 motherboard and would like to pick it up locally ASAP. It should preferably be cheap as I'm trying to build a cheap Nas and my motherboard is apparently dead.
Need to find the cheapest S775 motherboard that supports DDR3 and will run a E2200 or E6550 CPU.
A friend of the family lost almost everything as a result of a divorce/foreclosure, and her 9-year old son no longer has a home computer. I have enough parts (other than the motherboard) to build one for them.
