See now why did you have to go and do that to me? Now I am going to look at my systems and know that they will never match up to those two.
They are a little expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for. One strange thing though, I was looking at the Aurora ALX and when I tried to add a sound card I received an error about not having enough PCI slots. Strange that they would give you the option if you really cannot do this. Also strange that a new system does not have the ability to be upgraded.
Adding a sound card should be able to be done unless you get dual video cards.Dual cards are thick and some times cover the other slots. This is very true on the mATX (micro) MB.
It says in the tech specs list of what it can be upgraded to ie,pross,ram. A friend of mine has the Aura Area 51,and loves it. As far as upgrading the MB he has not take it apart yet...
Thay are expensive,but it has all the new technology..
