Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra = MUST HAVE
I wish I could buy a Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra.
Anyway, from what I've read so far, the C-Media CMI8378 chip seems to be a good buy because it does all that 5.1 6-channel digital/analog stuff. Right now it seems to be the king of integrated sound. I suspect it works just as well on a card.
