It looks like nVidia's H264/MPEG-4 AVC plans are coming out of the bag, as this press release claims that Purevideo does H264, WMV HD and MPEG-2. And this is on a GF 6 6200.

Hm, if its a sound card solution on the video card it self. Then id like to say 'hah told you so' i called it a while ago.

If its just a pass though from a mobo or pci sound card then i look dumb :D

It looks like the sound comes from another card:

• Audio
Sound Reality™ technology with DSD (Direct Stream Digital) support

(http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/SY_DisplayProductInformation-Start?CategoryName=&ProductSKU=VGXXL1&TabName=specs&var2=)

It supports DSD which means it can probably playback SACDs.

The DACs on some Creative cards support DSD as well IIRC.

Fun times ahead!
