Is this for your signature rig?

I ask because your XFX 790i Ultra Sli MoBo does have the SPDIF out required to send your 5.1 directly to your HT
no its not its for my htpc and it has nothing but line out and mic in
Some motherboards has SPDIF out headers on the motherboard itself. Take a look in the manual and see if it has it.

I've noticed that most new ones do have them, it would be just your luck if it didn't have one. Just have a look around on newegg if you are really desperate, there should be some cheap ones on there.

EDIT I'm not into soundcards much so i don't know my brands that well but this one looks nice
