    Default Do I need to keep Auzentech Forte Sound Card?

    Hi folks
    Few days ago Bought Asus Direct Cu TOP 450, Pioneer VSX 520K & JBL SCS 140,
    I heard that GPU is capable of decoding latest DD Tru HD, DTS Master HD & other codecs but could not gather confirmed details about it
    so do I need to keep my Auzentech Forte card or should i sell it off? Obviously will make HDMI Connections from GPU to AVR & then AVR to 3D Monitor so bitstreaming is possible?

    A quick web search shows the exact wording in the first sentence has been posted in multiple forums around the world.

    You should be able to find the answer by reading the user manual and checking the best hardware reviews sites.
    You should keep your sound card until you have run tests on your system to see which setup:
    * has all the features your want and need
    * offers the best feature set to meet your needs
    * offers the best quality and/or speed

    When I bought both of my HT|Omega sound cards, their website had a tremendous amount of information that answered my questions.
    Happy searching and reading.

    Not a problem.
    AnandTech often has very detailed tech articles covering a wide range of hardware.
    I think that they might have been the ones who posted a detailed article comparing encoding performance and quality with AMD, Nvidia, and Intel onboard options. Have you checked the Tweaktown.com site to check for reviews or articles?

    Check the Asus website product page for your card to see if there are additional manuals or product information to download.
    You can try sending a PM to the official ASUS tech rep to see if he can help you.

    You might have better luck with web searches, such as:
    • AMD vs Nvidia encoding
    • audio visual encoding computer options

    Maybe the information you want is from Nvidia.
    NVIDIA DRIVERS 280.26 WHQL are the current results searching Nvidia drivers for the GTS 450 video cards running with Vista or win7 64-bit.
    Explore this page and see if it leads to documentation that might help you.
