I have the above mentioned BioStar 7050-M2 also. I use it to drive a
1080p LCD TV and it works great. Right now the levels coming out of the
analog audio ports is very low. I feed through an external amp, so it
doesn't bother me and I didn't notice until someone else asked me if I
had that problem. I'll be hooking up the spdif soon and see if that
makes a difference. I have posted the numbers before but 1080i source
material takes about 50% of one core of the AMD X2 3600+ and 720p source
material takes about 65%. Both of these are without xvmc. I am not
currently using audio through HDMI (monitor only has two speakers
anyway, so not high on my list).
