    I'm going to try this distribution, but I can't find anywhere drivers for my mainboard MSI Z77A-G43 and sound card Audiotrak Prodigy HD 2 Advance DE. There are just versions for Windows. I think It may be possible to get some of the motherboards (USB 3, chipset and ethernet) from Intel and Realtek? But what about my sound card?

    Dude, those are already included in the Linux kernel (except your dedicated sound card, maybe, but you could still give it a go). Just install the OS, and if any HW does not seem to function ask us.

    Can we take a look at what you have for audio devices?
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep "Audio"
    Example:
    Code:
    jdoane@Spock:~$ sudo lspci | grep "Audio"
    00:07.0 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S High Definition Audio (rev a1)
    02:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV630 audio device [Radeon HD 2600 Series]

    a google search shows a few hits of people successfully running ubuntu 10.10 with that sound card.
