    Ok, got the new computer in with the Jetway J9F2 mobo. Playing around with it since I am waiting for the new hybrid drive to come in. It appears you CAN separate the front ports from the back. Here is the breakdown:

    Rear (3 ports for 4.1/5.1 surround)
    Front l/r
    Rear l/r
    Subwoofer
    Front (2 ports)
    Micfront with Noise and ECHO cancellation
    Headphones

    Now the problem. There is a line in, but only when using the 2 output. So here is what I am going to attempt....

    The Audigy 2 for line in, line out for front, rear, and sub. Then the internal sound for microphone with noise/echo. I am guessing, though, there will be a problem with echo since the same soundcard is not being used for the speakers and the mic. If that is the case, I am going to try using the audigy 2 for line in only. Seems one of these setups should work nicely. I'll let you know. The hybrid drive should be in tomorrow. Have found the location in the new case to mount the m2-atx so it looks like everything is going to be a go.

    I also was able to get the second system built using the C137 Casetronic case. Logic Systems tried telling me they couldn't mount an M2-atx and I needed to buy an M3. They didn't look very close. There is a place right in front of the motherboard that is made (specifically I am guessing) for an M2 since it fits perfectly. Some peoples kids.
    My opinion is my own.

    6 USB ports and 3 firewire. Kinda bothered there isn't an internal header not being used. For some reason they went with 1 USB internal header (that's the 2 ports in front) and 2 firewire ports (only 1 being used), but I think it will work out fine using hubs.

    I don't see why you can't use mic line as line in when running the 4.1 out of the outputs.

    Mic in is going to be used as mic in (voice/phone). In order to use the built in echo/noise features, I can't use the USB mic. Still one connector short. You know, if this works, those Audigy's are only like $30, so even if you only use one or two ports out of 6, it's worth it.

    Edit: Hybrid drive is "out for delivery"....wooohooo!
    My opinion is my own.

    Give more info please. Pro's cons, links, etc.

    Running dual PCI's in a car computer is difficult to impossible though.

    This isn't the setup.

    No, that is for boards with 6 ports on the back and 2 on the front (like the kino or fuzzy). Our board only has 3 and 2.

    Funny how even though the card can handle the channels, the manufacturer doesn't provide the ports connected to do the same.

    You know, if this computer wasn't at the price it was, I would never have bought this board by itself for that very reason. I was going to go with kino or fuzzy just for the sound options. Sometimes, these manufacturers don't get it, and I find Jetway to be the worst at "knowing it's customer".

    But since the computer was at a good price, I figured it would be just as easy to throw a soundcard at it.
    My opinion is my own.
