    What's wrong with onboard sound? I think it's better than Off-board sound.

    My Lite-On (generic brand) got DVD's and CD's read and wrote with decent speeds. Also, there was one corrupt disk out of 116. Tell me, is generic really that bad?

    8.5/10
    Gigabyte mobo -1 (I personally dislike Gigabyte)
    Quantum HDD -.5 (In my expierence, Quantum Fireballs are loud as hell, well at least my 20GB one was...)



    It's not totally great, it's on the generic side of things...

    I've used one of them...it all sounds the same. Realtek is better than Creative Labs, so I have no need for a POS sound card...

    4/10 and you should get a hd 2600xt on your settup or a 8600gt would be nice and cheap and your cpu wouldnt bottleneck it to bad.

    cdawall 8/10. Could get better HDD's


    NewEgg, $35

    Don't really game a lot...just BF2, Sims 2 + all EP's, the Movies, Total Overdose, GTA San Andreas, other games like that...I think 1GB is good enough for my needs...
