And by the way, that's not an external sound card. It's an internal sound card. In fact, anything external isn't a card at all because a card is something that goes into a slot like a PCI or PCI-E slot.
You're right, I kinda forgot which was called what, english isn't my native.

ASRock H61 Pro BTC
Only ATX is the H61 pro BTC.. but I have no idea of this bitcoin priority and how much it affects other things, specielly for gaming.. looks like that is my best option right now.. is it going to affect anything performance wise? overclocking? ... I basically just need a mobo that can last a few years, until I can afford to upgrade the CPU...

There is a pretty good selection of decent boards depending on what you want to spend.
Also if the sound card completely covers an entire fan, it is possible it will have a large effect on air flow. But like TC said, you really can't know until you test it yourself.
I would say don't even try to get a new board, they just aren't around anymore for that socket.
Used is your way to go.
Ebay and stuff have weird listing, and most of them are more expensive than what they used to cost at launch in stores.. but so far I haven't found one that I'm tempted to buy, but i'll keep looking.. since it seems like I have to.Edited by Aymanb - 2/9/16 at 12:12am
