And now my current situation...
I bought a ECS GF8200A last friday, current steup is as follows:
AMD X2 5000+ Black Edition
4x1GB OCZ 800
2xRAID0 WD 80GB
1x WD 500GB
Coolermaster 650w psu
I installed Vista64, used the drivers from the ECS website, but I was unable to get any audio from HDMI and no Hybrid SLi. After trying multiple drivers with no luck, pulled the 8500GT and installed display driver 174.74. Finally got multi-channel working which sounded great. I decided to try putting the 8500GT to see if Hybrid SLi would work and I lost the multi-channel, again. There has to be some sort of bug in the drivers or bios, the sound issue I'm having is strange and my video playback isn't smooth for Blu-ray or DVD's. I doubt its a resources issue because my cpu load is very low during playback. So now I am pulling the 8500GT and re-installing all nvidia drivers to try to get multi-channel back.
Thanks to Bahn Yuki and mry110 for their help in this impossible task.
You're in Portland and you drive a Z? Hahah I have a 2004 350Z, we should compare systems some time. Anyway not to derail this thread, I used Nvidia's drivers all throughout. I didn't use Asus's stuff at all.
To Abmagfab, my SONY STR-DG810 won't matrix anything PCM...I'm pretty sure it's getting uncompressed PCM. I still have an open invite to all in the Willametter Valley area...
