It's not about bandwidth, it's about protection. In actuality, a single S/PDIF link can handle 4ch PCM--in fact that's what it was made for. However in consumer use it was never used for more than...

Ah yes some PSU makers were still "getting away" with that in those days though as you can see from the Hardware Secrets text it was dated even at the time. Those are more like AT-days specs (or...

Ehh sorry you were right the first time. On second thought 18A of 12V is really low for a "430W" supply--I apologise. I just posted that on my way out of the house today and wasn't thinking...

A bit late now but 18A is plenty. Note that a 260X and 265 are completely different cards. 260X is Bonaire XTX while 265 is Pitcairn Pro (same as a 7850). 265 is definitely faster but the 260X has...

While that's true he's also talking about keeping a card for 7 years, so he wouldn't be the type to upgrade in 2-3 years like most gamers would. Your cards that still work are presumably long out of...

If you don't have PAP, it's not that big a deal. You'll just get resampled output which...really isn't that big a deal. And PAP really only comes into play for strict BD playback. Playing BDs...

I dunno, I wouldn't say that for sure. As long as the card you get has adequate cooling and you have adequate case ventilation on top of that, you shouldn't have too many issues. Heat and high...

Yep it certainly will though if you aren't going to be doing any gaming or using things like madVR or SVP, it's going to be overkill as well.

Dolby Digital is terrible--640kbps for 6 channels is a joke. I can notice a difference, audibly, on a BD if somehow the DD track is inadvertently selected, without even looking at what the player...
