I have a wireless modem and that but do i need anything extra for my computer build so i can connect to the internet wireless?

If you mean a wireless router then only the installation software that was provided with the wireless device + the SSID and the network key provided by your ISP, the latter two are the passwords that you need to pair the computer to the wireless router and then gain access to the internet.

From my reply #2

Missing from the list is a DVD drive to install the OS and an OS disk itself such as Windows 7 64-bit.


from my reply #8

Do you already have a DVD drive and OS disk.

Gday.

I have a wireless modem and that but do i need anything extra for my computer build so i can connect to the internet wireless?


No, you have WiFi GO, Dual band Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0/3.0+HS intagrated on the MB, so nothing else needed.


We still need to know if you are buying a new OS disk? if reusing one? is it downloaded and burned, OEM or a full retail ver.?

Thanks for the update.
It is not our intention to badger you, just insuring that when you start the build, you have nothing missing, hence.
Please confirm if you already have and Optical drive or have one ordered?

Suggest you download the MB user manual from the manufacturers website as it could be updated from the one you receive in the box, also enabling you to familiarize yourself with it.

Do you need a Tutorial on How to Build? or have other questions?

You can ask as many questions as you need to in this topic if it concerns this build, there is no need to start a new topic if you have another question.

Most MBs made today have very good integrated audio chips including the MB that you have selected, you will gain nothing by fitting an add on sound card unless you spend a lot of money on one + speakers to match the capabilities of the add on sound card.

Your MB has;

Audio
Realtek® ALC898 8-channel high definition audio CODEC
- Absolute Pitch 192khz/24bit true BD lossless sound
- BD audio layer content protection
- DTS UltraPC II
- DTS Connect
- Supports jack-detection, multi-streaming, front panel jack-retasking
- Optical S/PDIF out port at back I/O

The only caveat I would add to the above post - is if you really like superb audio, and you will not be using an external amplifier (RCA or Optical out), instead using regular analog audio out posts on the motherboard -- very few mainboards actually have good enough amplified sound to drive a good pair of headphones well. Some higher end boards have it but only a few. High Impedance headphones benefit from an add-on sound card tremendously such as the Asus Xonar line or Creative SoundBlaster Z series that have a headphone amplifier amp built in. If you are using a speaker set then the mobo analog outs are fine usually.
