Yes thanks for that,but its still using onboard sound to process the data,then the card does its thing(using decoders)for music only(say MP3).
Hell even a gt2xx cards can do that.LOL.
So no real DolbyTrueHD/DTS-HD (like blue ray output)
I am just using s/pdif(optical) to reciever(harmon kardon),so I am not sure the sound will be any different for say blue ray movies(unless someone knows how to get the 192 sound).Music though it might be different and worth a try.
I might try this.What else can a 480GTX card do sound wise.
