  10. Re: A8N32 & ALC850 - 5.1 Tests Fine but Only 2.1 in Games

    Thanks Liquidsoul.

    I used the drivers from the mainboard CD so I assume those are the ASUS versions. The game has the option and it was set correctly. Didn't work with onboard sound but works fine...

    Re: 7900 GTX Retail experiences?

    Seems the OC'd boards are not the only ones with the problems.

    I'm on my second set of MSI 7900GTX's. These are not factory OC'd boards and I run them at stock speeds and voltage. They were...
