    Hi guys i was able to revive this SF E machines Tower EL1330 AMD ATHLON 2850E,after i repaired Power Supply but there is no sound due to integrated sound circuit on the motherboard being damaged missing components and broken circuit,everything else is find,it came with Win7 , already upgraded to win 10,now i need sound, i found out that i can get an USB sound card,will this SYBA Multimedia - USB Stereo Sound Adapter work or any other? i really don't want to spend much money,no need for great sound, just sound.

    That should work.
    Or check some mom and pap computer shops in your area, they might have some pci sound cards that they pulled from various rebuilds and you might get it for 5 bucks or so, no shipping no waiting.

    I'm with shteii01.

    You can buy new for around $6 or so from newegg.

    Thanks for the suggestion but my mother board has pcix1 slot and it's a Small Form Tower so i checked SF pci x1 cards and they not cheap,this one has good reviews and it's cheap.

    For now i get this and see how good it is,don't need very good sound,just plain sound,i have a few more better PCs ,this one has good reviews and it's cheap.

    i received the Sound adapter today and i'm impressed eventually i get better sound than if it were from the integrated sound amp,i have 2 speakers without amplification and i get plenty of sound,
    and it was so easy,just put the adapter in the USB port turned on PC and voila good sound,so far so good,and it was cheaper than if i get a PCIx1 SF Sound card.
    and it works great with Win 10.
