    I have been searching for something like this to add 5.1 to my computer/gaming setup in my computer room. It is supposed to ship this month for around $150. It will work as a stand alone 5.1 decoder as well. So cool![​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hmmm....

    I wonder what the CPU utilization is like via the USB port? I'd hold off on buying until I learned that important answer.

    yes it's via USB Port. If you go to either soundblaster.com or creativelabs.com you can find the external decoder being advertised.

    I agree with Camp, wait until you see what the CPU utilization will be. I bet it will be high. Why not just get the internal version?
