Looks pretty cool.
Now to see how the new APUs perform when they become available.
My question is - given the quality of the inbuilt audio processors on new boards like this one, does it make sense any longer to invest in a separate audio card ?...
I don't think so. I haven't used a separate audio card in years. Then again I haven't had a decent headset until the past couple months. I always bought the $20 sets just to have something and found out recently how nice a $60-70 set can be.
