    What card or interface are you guys using to pump out AC3 digital stream to a 5.1 system? Not looking for the best-est. just want to pump it out of my computer and listen on a consumer system that has optical and coax in. I just want to be able to build a dvd and play the image file and hear the AC3 stream on the consumer system without having to burn a ref and walk over and stick it in the DVD player. I want to see how long i can go without getting out of my chair. Oh, i'm on Mac.

    Got an extra slot for this?:

    Haven't used it, but it looks kinda like a Creative clone.
    Most importantly, you get a software package including Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3.

    You can probably get all you need out of a good ol' Audigy Platinum board from Creative Labs. They sold for around $100-200 a couple of years ago, depending on the model. I'm sure there's new stuff out there as well.

    I don't think it comes with the Tony Hawk game, though...sorry! :wink:
