Hi, I'm building a new system, I've bought an Asus MAXIMUS VII RANGER mobo which apparently has excellent onboard sound via the optical out. I also have a Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X GPU which of-course supports HDMI sound.
Which should I use? I run my system through a Sony AV Receiver with 5.1 high quality speakers (possibly going 7.1 if I can be bothered to re-arrange my living room !).
