PC game audio
Hi. It's been a while. I am here to shamelessly pick people's brains for free, again, and I will say up front that I did not read all 319 pages of this thread. So if this is a repeat question, please flame me to your heart's content, but be sporting and answer, too, if you will. Here's the thing: I play games with PCM surround sound. I currently am getting true in-game audio (and DTS HDMA, etc.) by running a dual-monitor setup with a 2560 monitor for video through DP and a Sony AVR through HDMI for audio, telling Windows that the Sony is a monitor. I do that because if I just run GTX 780Ti SLI/AVR/Samsung S27A850D, there is lag, which is poison for gaming, and I doubt it would work at all with my new 2560x1440 resolution. It works great, except the dual monitor setup is giving me fits on boot, and other minor annoyances, no need to go into that here. So I'm thinking let a sound card handle the audio and go back to a single monitor setup.
So, two questions: Will this card send the same audio through its HDMI out that I now get from the Nvidia graphics card's HDMI? Is there a different card that will, whether or not this one will? Thanks for reading all this.
