After reading past threads all summer my arca cabinets are turning up next week which means i will be building a HCPC, however i am still not completely clear on the actually day to day use of some of the more upmarket sound cards. I will be using the PC for games, web, music and film storage and scaling to a panny 42PHD6. All sources will be switced via my denon AVC-11SR and so this is what i will be connecting the sound card to. ---The thing is dont know weather which/if higher end sound cards will support games? ---Obviously i will need to output via spidif for 5/6/7.1 (games and films)but for music would i be better using the phono outs of the card (i.e. are the amp's or the soundcard's DACs better), and is it easy to switch between the analogue and digital outputs?
