Good Review. Noob to the boards here but am looking at getting this board as well. Any additional comments you can provide on the included sound card? I am parting out my old system and have a X-fi Gamer PCI version. Debating whether or not to sell it and just use the included SupremeFx card. Curious if I would even be able to tell the difference between the two.

That's too subjective for me to really give you a definitive answer.

However, unless you consider yourself an audiophile, I think that you'll be satisfied with the SupremeFX card.

Thanks. I'm thinking it will probably be good enough as well. Now just need to offload my old setup so that I can pull the trigger on this.

Thanks
