I have a Gigabyte board also, works like a charm. Mine is a different model though.

O.K. so open a command prompt and run the command as root 'lspci' cut and paste the results. Then we'll know what sound hardware you have.

Also run the command 'lsmod | grep snd' cut and paste the results. All commands without quotes.

Also open a mixer, and make sure the volume is turned up, it may just be turned too low to hear well.

You should not need a separate sound card, unless you are not happy with the quality of sound.

You seem to have the correct sound modules inserted. What happens when you tried the mixer?

Open a konsole, and type 'alsamixer' ( without the quotes ) you should see a series of vertical coloured bars representing various mixer settings. Use the arrow keys to adjust settings.
