I'm kinda proud of it in fact. However, there's one small problem and it concerns the audio. Currently, the only way I can hear anything is through headphones and the like. Acer Predator comps should have built in speakers, yes? If so, I wonder where I can get the required drivers...

Is that the desktop?

If so gaming desktop don't come with built in speakers, and even if they did they are bad quality.

Get a good surround sound system.

Desktops do not come with speakers integrated. That is ridiculous. Generally your monitor will have them but preferably get a nice set of speakers.

Well higher end gaming ones don't. Workstations sometimes do.

@FelipeInside: I guess my desktop in my office does at work but it is complete trash.

Yeah they have gotten better (Newer HP inbuilt speakers are actually decent) but of course nothing beats a set of good quality external speakers.

Yeah, no matter, a separate set of speakers is always better

@bronzeheart92: Sadly I can't find the MOBO they use for their systems, try to see it when you open the side of the case.
