Waiting for my motherboard

Well I have everything. I went with a sexy Asu GTX 560 Video card instead of a Radeon. I spent a little more on it but I read that it had good overclocking for a little extra boost.

Anyways, now all I am waiting on is my motherboard. It was slapped in the mail on Tuesday, and I should have had it Wednesday but I have a forwarding order to a PO Box, and now I have to wait extra. So I won't get it until at least this next Tuesday.

This is frustrating, but I assume its well worth the wait.

Also, I decided to invest in Logisys 15" Cold Cathodes.
I got blue, sound activate ones for my case. I hope it looks great!

Lastly, I was thinking of either buying a heat sink for my CPU, or to buy a nice sound card (no more than $100 though) because I love music/movies/cinematic experiences in games.

Which should I get?


  1. Sounds good!
    And i would go for the sound card, unless the heat sink is desperately needed to stop your computer overheating

  2. It only occurred to me the other day that my computer is over 4 years old. :'(
    He still works perfectly though <3

  3. If you are a true audiophile, then I seriously recommend the M-Audio Audiophile 2496

    Bit old card, but fucking excellent!

  4. Most motherboard have on-board audio that is sufficient for a good gaming/movie playback (provided you have good speakers as well), so I'd recommend a heatsink over a sound card. An issue I had with sound cards in the past was that the software required to utilize and customize all the features came with tons of proprietary bloatware, which was annoying.

  5. I agree, unless you're planning on doing some very serious overclocking a heat sink isn't needed. A sound card will make a big difference if you have a good speaker setup to go with it.
