    The 5820k is not compatible with my motherboard and besides it was not available. 4790k was the hotrod at the time of purchase.

    My 4790k running @4.6 for three years finally burned to the ground about a year ago. Decided to build a 5600x rig but kept the old rig as a backup and plugged in a 3.00 i5. No i7 but 4790k's are expensive to buy used on ebay. $130.00-200.00 + dollars for a 6 year old CPU. Still a great processor...

    Dedicated sound card or onboard sound

    Anyway, for what I am doing and spending under $100.00 USD for a decent sound card is a deal and a half. That was my initial point. Show me a bi-directional HDMI sound card. Sure I use DAC for the input.

    Dedicated sound card or onboard sound

    Haha, I have a Z SE in my main unit and a X-FI Titanium HD in the old 4790k rig. I use Audacity for audio conversion to FLAC. Load all my devices or stream. I do both.

    Dedicated sound card or onboard sound

    Sound cards are still very useful for people like me who need an input. HDMI does not do that. You are locked to R&R if you live by HDMI. I use both but truth be known you only need HDMI bandwidth for certain audio outputs. Optical has beautiful sound. I convert vinyl, CD's and other audio to...
