    How is the onboard sound on this motherboard???

    I want medium-high quality sound.

    I'm gonna get 5.1 speakers and wanna know if the onboard sound will be okay.

    It will be alright, considering this is a newer mobo, I would invest and get an add-in card like an Audigy II. Or you can use the mobo for now until you get the new card, that way you will appreciate the card more. DOn't worry the sound will be "OK"...but get a card..

    Its an Nvidia Sound Storm and it wasn't good enough for me so I ended up going out and buying my audigy 2 ZS and have never ever looked back. I would suggest just spending the money on a decent add-in card, if you have good speakers or headphones that you will notice the difference!
