Hello all,

Ive recently bought a new computer, and i'm really not very clued up when it comes to these things... I can't seem to get any sound!

First things first i'm not sure if i've actually got a sound card or not, here's the spec of my computer and i'm sure you'll be able to answer pretty quick as to whether I have or not!... or is it built into my motherboard?... like I said, pretty clueless:

Case: Galaxy3 ATX Case with 450w PSU 4 Bay with Front Audio and USB
Dimensions: Length - 480mm, Width - 200mm, Height - 410mm
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.8ghz 1066Mhz 2mb Cache SKT775
Processor Interface : SKT 775
CPU Cooler : Intel Retail Boxed
Memory: Major Brand 2gb DDR2 800 PC6400 CL6.0 Memory Module
Hard Drive: Branded 250gb Sata 7200rpm 8mb Cache HDD
Graphics Card: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 Max. shared memory: 384MB
Motherboard: Asrock G31M-GS 1333fsb Intel G31 Chipset S/V/L M-ATX SKT775
Max Memory Support: 8gb DDR2 800
Motherboard Expansion Slots: 1x PCI-E 16x, 1x PCI-E 1x, 2x 32-bit PCI
Network Card: 10/100/1000 Realtek RTL8111DL
Audio: 5.1 CH Windows Vista Premium Level HD Audio (Realtek ALC662 Audio Codec)
Optical Drive: 20x Lightscribe DVD Writer with Buffer Underrun Protection
Power Supply: Branded 450w 24Pin Power Supply Unit

Says something about a codec, is that just a driver?

On a side note depending on the outcome of the above obviously, if I do need a soundcard is there anything specifically I should be looking for when buying one?.. just want a budget gaming PC really.

Cheers in advance.
