    Does the ASUS DGX output 5.1 SPDIF signal?

    Reading the review below there is the following line and I don't know what it means: "The Xonar DGX can't encode digital bitstreams on the fly, limiting multi-channel digital output to pre-encoded tracks" and... "The Xonar DGX might not be able to encode digital bitstreams in real-time, but it...

    GTX 670vs. 680 = worth the extra bucks?

    I'm looking at upgrading from a GTX 570 to an MSI GTX 670 Power Edition OC and from the review Sky did this card should perform close to a standard 680. For gaming at 1920x1200 do you think a 680 would be worth the extra $100 or so? The 670 is on sale for $380 right now.

    For a long time I would upgrade every 1 1/2 - 2 years but I've had my i7 920 for 4 years in January and still find no fault with it. I can OC it to 3.6ghz without hitting the voltages and I've never had any stability issues at all in those four years. The newest game I've played is Skyrim...
