    plans with this computer?

    only thing i think you might do better with is the RAM, and that's only if you're overclocking. For stock gaming, i think hardware looks fine.

    plan on using it for gaming and some video editing.

    I read that board likes the ocz platinum over corsair and overclocks a little better. :dunno: It had good reviews on newegg.

    Will that m-adio usb soundcard be fine for gaming? I need something with an 1/4" audio in for recording and didnt want to get a seperate d.i. box.

    Well there's nothing wrong with it really, jsut for a s939 rig TCCD/UTT is usually what you want for overclocking. And what is the highest multi on the 3500+? 11? that means you have to get at LEAST 250MHz outta your RAM to hit 2.75GHz 1t (i dunno if you want to overclock that high...jsut a number.)

    Review of this kit, "Mine maxed out at 235mhz but it needed 2t for that, which made it worthless. At 2t it's slower than 200mhz at 1t."

    See what i mean? older PC3200 just isn't really that great if you're looking for a substantial overclock on a s939 rig.

    as far as sound, i'm not 100% sure. i use onboard soundstorm on my old NF2 board and it's fine for me. i'm probably not the best person to ask about sound lol sry.
