Z68 MB with DDL or DTS Interactive support

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The new guy says hello everybody!

I am putting a new rig together and need help with the motherboard. Currently I have my pc connected to an av receiver via optical. With some games (Crysis2, Mass Effect 2, etc) I get 5.1 surround using DTS Interactive from the onboard Realtek ALC890.
Searching for a Z68 motherboard, I see most use the ALC892 codec. This has THX TruStudio PRO support, but this wont give me 5.1 through optical.

What can I do? Will the Asrock Z68 Extreme4 or Asus P8Z68-V work?

You want something like the above.
I have an Asrock 790GX that can do this.

Don't know any Z68 boards with DTS though.
