I use onboard sound so I'd have to vote for that.

Unless you have a nice surround sound system or do audio editing, I'd get the onboard.

I think that I'd go for either the 165 or 170 because w/ some overclocking you can get the fx speeds for much less.

regardless of what you choose I'd say you should get a real sound card. even if it's just an audigy 2. you'll get better sound quality and the sound processing will be done by the card not your cpu so you'll also get better performance

Opteron 170 and the xfi.

Trust me on this. The fx-60 is way more money than you should be spending (especially with watercooling). You can smoke the fx-60 with your 170 if you overclock. Plus, the soundcard will be much nicer than onboard. I hate onboard compared to my soundcard.

Get the nicest CPU and then drop a cool $25 for the Turtle Bay Riviera. Very very good budget card. I have it on 3 of my systems, and it sounds fantastic in surround (and great with BF2)
