The Realtek ALC260 codec is fine for regular sound output as long as you only need stereo sound. It only has 2 channels but if that's all you need - no sweat. It outputs 24-bit sound at a 192 kHz sampling rate and with a SNR of 95 dB. That is more than plenty for normal usage.
Okay thanks, I had been looking for the SNR so thanks for telling me. Based on what you said it should be good enough for me.
