I am beginning to need space for more hard drives in my HTPC and the only way for me to do that as i see it, is to install a sata controller on my PCIE port. Thing is i only have one besides the one my graphic card is in. The last one is used on my soundcard i need because of optical output.
I have looked around and i kinda liked the Sound Blaster X-Fi HD but as i see it, it is only in stereo. But do i need to concern myself with that since i use pass through? If that doesnt work can then anyone recommend a good USB sound card for surround?
