I built a system for my brother using the 1st revision of this board which has a slightly smaller northbridge cooler and used the DTS interactive feature to encode a DTS 1.5Mbit bitstream on the fly. If i'm not mistaken, the later revision had Dolby Digital Live! instead, but should do the same 2ch -> 5.1 upmixing and regular DD + DTS passthrough. It should also handle other 6 channel streams that aren't necessarily AC3 or DTS, like in most games or your .mkvs, and output it in all its multichannel glory (albeit slightly compressed DTS or DD) over the digital out. Realistically, unless you have a 7.1 setup, this will be good enough. Check your realtek sound settings- mine had the DTS settings/buttons at the bottom of the window.
