Oh choices choices.. So I have a question for you all. Do you think the onboard audio for this Mobo will work with a 5.1 speaker system? (I'm pretty sure it is a yes, but this is my first 5.1 system purchase so Idk 100%) Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131335 speakers - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836121006 Also.. if anyone has any recomendations for speakers, I'm all for it. I would prefer a 2.1+ system and a 5.1 would be nice I'm not looking to BLAST music, but to play it at a decent listening volume and hear all the wonderful sounds of lows and highs mixed. I'm also basically on a budget, so cheap/deals/free shipping are a must! Thanks for help in advance!
