    Hi guys.
    I have Roccat Kave 5.1 headphones, is there any way to use it with my 5850 Radeon? I noticed it's compatible with 5.1 sound. To be honest I'm completely lost and don't know how to do that.

    I think you may have to use the audio output on your monitor/TV/reciever. I don't think ATi cards have a SPDIF cable output to connect to motherboards.
     
    Rebelstar says thanks.

    So, basically I can't somehow sent signal from 5850 HDMI audio to my regular motherboard sound outputs?

    No, but you can use your motherboard's onboard audio and disable the ATi HDMI Audio in your control panel. To the best of my knowledge that's all you can do with the exception of what I said in my post above.

    That's bad news :( Since my motherboard can't support 5.1 sound properly I need new audio card then.

    Thanks anyway!

    I must ask what the point of a 5.1 headphone is?
