Yep, sound quality is MUCH MUCH better with a separate audio card. On-board audio only offer a "basic" sound. However, only people like me or audio professionals needs those cards. Those cards also professional features that most of us won't probably never use. But, I buy it for the audio quality. It's also one of the reasons that motherboards still have a PCI port these days... not all sound cards has a PCI-Express x1 connection.

For me, it's a good purchase but for others it might be totally useless. :P

So, I checked the OCZ Vertex 2 Again and it seems to be more expensive than the Agility 2...
Vertex 2 : Newegg.ca - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE90G 2.5" 90GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (219$)
Agility 2 : Newegg.ca - OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGTE90G 2.5" 90GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (189$)

I don't think that it's worth the extra 30$.

I didn't forget Windows. I am currently using a retail version of Windows 7 Home Premium. I'm transfering this key over to the other. Don't worry. My current Win7 setup will be formated. I won't be breaking Microsoft's EULA.

Your welcome, glad to help.

Vertex 2 is an Excellent choice, especially at the same, or less, price.

This is one very nice system you have purchased.
