I'm rather envious of everyone claiming 20ft with a k400. My k400 is lucky to get half that. It's next to unusable in the event something is breaking its line of sight from the usb dongle.

Personally I wouldn't trust a 60watt psu that is likely 4-5 years old. For all you know it probably is only capable of delivering 2/3s of that wattage due to age, use, and other factors.

Sell or return the sound card and keep using hdmi.
Only reason I would consider a sound card is for headphone use if the onboard wasn't static/hiss free or maybe to keep using an older receiver.

Huh? I never said anything about the CPU.

Could you clarify the turning on/off issue a bit? Ie when you turn it on does windows shutdown properly by itself or does it just instantly cut out?

I wish I knew the answer to that.

On a side note don't bother upgrading to PowerDVD_14.0.4412.58 if you rely on analog audio for whatever reason as all you will get is static when not bitstreaming.
