  1. any 5.1 EAX and dolby digital cards w/ optical out for under $80??? Sounds like too much to ask for a sound card but thats what i need to run my DD and EAX games. My ext. reciever has only an optical input and what it calls a Coaxial input (however on my Sound max card its has the "SPDIF" output, but works with the Coaxial input) Wierd how some sound cards have 2 different types of SPDIF.....the Microphone jack type and the rca type. Wierd i say.
