Help Needed Please-Sound Card & Graphic Card

  Shikaree 20:09 27 May 2009

Hi Folks,

I'm just listing the components for a new Build Computer.

Motherboard - P5Q Deluxe P45 Socket 775
Processor - Intel Core2 Quad Q6600

1. Do I have to use the usual PCI Sound Card or a one that is compatible with PCI-E and does it have to be Vista Compatible.

2. Does the Graphic Card have to be, beside PCI-E also compatible with Vista.

Please advise.

1. You don't need a sound card at all - HD multi channel sound is built in to the board.

2. If you're running Vista then, yes the graphics card has to be compatible. I doubt though, that you'll find one that isn't.

To clarify...
You can either use the onboard sound or buy any soundcard you want.
You can use any graphics card you want.
