GA-8IPE 1000 - Sound help please

Hi Everyone, Can anybody tell me if there is a way, when using the onboard sound on a GA-8IPE1000 Pro2, to have the sound coming out of the rear audio connector but use the front audio connector for a microphone? I'd appreciate any help, Gazza how can i connect my 5.1 speakers to a motherboard with only 3 rear audio rear connectors (ASUS MB). Thanks!

As far as your first question it is possible. there may be an option in the bios. if not. you can bust out the soldering iron and solder the lines for you frontal mic port to the card.maybe put some sort of connector inline

and for your second question. there is no way. unless you upgrade your sound card. although i do have a logitech 5.1 system that uses some sort of matrix technology to emulate surround sound out of a standard stereo input. cost me 60 bucks and works great

I was wondering whats the min power supply unit I can use with my Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000-G Motherboard? Is a 300 watt Sufficient or will it cause problems compares to the 550 watt PSU that its currently...

By lowering the WATTS from 550 down to 300, you may find the P.C. starts shutting down or restarting, as it does not have enough power to operate everything inside the tower. You need to add up all the WATTS on the different things running on power ( i.e. Motherboard, Graphics Card, RAM, Fans, Sound Card,USB plug-ins, HDD, CD/DVD drive). You maybe not have all listed but by lowering the power might be not worth it to be honest.

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series

HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
