As others have said, you don't need a soud card. The only reason to get one would be if you have a 5.1/7.1 setup that you want to use thru optical or coaxial as mobos usually don't support Dolby Digital/DTS. If you plan on using the analog connection or only have 2.1 speakers you'll be be fine with onboard sound.

The ath-m50s don't need an AMP so they'll be fine with the onboard audio.

I didn't order one.

I may order one next month when I order my receiver (Onkyo TX-NR636), but that all depends on how much I spend on speakers.

I use a FiiO E6 with my M50s now, I wasn't planning on buying a desktop amp or anything like that.

I just looked at the setup in your sig, looks like you have the ProMedia 2.1s and ATH M50 (although yours are coiled) too. As well as a FiiO amp, a PS3 and a 360. I think we'd get along.

I also have a wheel, but just the Driving Force GT - so 2 pedals and a linear shifter.

What do you think of that steelseries mouse pad? I had it in my Amazon cart until my wife talked me out of it lol.

And what arcade/fight pad is that?

Depends on the mouse you have, I love my QCK+ only because I use 800 dpi and 1.5 sens in source games.

Some mice don't track correctly on black cloth surfaces.
