Hi guys, i have just bought a yamaha receiver that i want to connect to my pc via HDMI to play Dolby/DTS HD, i have dual monitors so i cant use my installed graphic card for HDMI audio out, my question is, can i install a second graphic card (with hdmi audio pass-through support) and use it as a sound card using its HDMI port only? I m not sure if it will work, so i need some help if anyone ever tried something like this. Thanks in advance.

Does your motherboard have an optical S/PDIF port on it?

It has and thats what i m using now, but S/PDIF doesn't support Dolby/DTS HD passthrough, only HDMI does.
