post #12 of 24
I started this thread two months ago. Have had a 780G for a week and have already managed to break it even

BTW: There are ECS, Asus, and Gigabyte boards featuring this chip on newegg right now. (They appeared two nights ago).

Oh, I found this preview on the 780G. Each manufactor seems to be doing something different with this chipset. Make sure yours has everything you need.

BTW, Check out the MSI version.... it comes has a 5x100w amp and a pre-amp!!!
Once again...

I guess it's neat if you're doing something on the cheap, but I can't possibly imagine the sound quality to be any good... there is a reason why power-amps can sometimes weigh well over 50kg....

I guess if you're REALLY on a budget it's a nice touch...

I just built a new media center based around the asus M3A78-EMH HDMI with an amd x2 4400, 4gb 800mhz corsair ram, and 2 500gb wd hard drives. I am using onboard audio and video. Running Vista ultimate 64. I am using coreavc for the video codec and ffdshow for the audio. When playing 1080p mkv files the audio is out of sync and the video stutters also my cpu usage maxes out. When I uninstall the ffdshow audio codec the video plays like butter the cpu usage doesn’t go higher the 50% on both cores, but no sound if I install the ffdshow I get audio but then I get the stuttering on playback. I am using the latest coreavc codec and ffdshow 2000. Any suggestions would really be appreciated. I am pretty sure I should be able to play back 1080p files with no problems with my system specs.

Create a new topic for your specific issue. No one will see it in here and it is off topic.

basically mate when ffdshow is installed your media player is using it asa video as well as audio codec, in your player settings you need to set the preferred codec as coreavc
