These always make me feel better about my machine. It's amazing what kind of hardware people can still get away with.
Anyway, are soundcards really such a niche item? Has the quality of integrated audio devices improved, or is it just that people don't notice/care about what they're hearing? Sensory discrimination! Only you can emancipate your ears!
My heart goes out to those hundreds of people with less than 10Gb total HDD space. I'm struggling with 500Gb.
