Hi folks - just found these forums and hope someone can help. I'm looking to build my first HCPC and am fairly set on most of the components I intend to use apart from the soundcard. I'm looking at the Soundblaster Audigy ZS and the Audiotrak Prodigy cards (or are there other alternatives I have overlooked?). I want a good allrounder - good for music/DVD/HDTV and games. I have a couple of questions: 1. If I connect the Soundblaster via SPDIF to my DAC, does this get around the 48Khz resampling issue (and would the sound quality therefore be improved?) 2. Which connection/s do I use on the soundcard for 5.1 sound for games? Any help greatly appreciated.
