    As a newbie I am about to do the dramatic upgrade to the new gaming level. I have worked out that the gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R is what I want but I am a bit puzzled. Does it contain things like built in sound card etc? (like my previous ones did?) I can’t find any info on on-board extras..
    Any info would be happily received … even news that it has nothing extra… just so long as I know!
