I tried this with my Onboard Realtek Audio and it worked, I get EAX and Extreme quality and also fixes the sound bugs in all the maps.

Ok after going through this a bit and also trying to figure out what the differance between AC'97 and HD in quality i found a solution why even when u put the HD Audio Plug in on the Motherboard you only get medium quility. People who have pluged the HD Plug into the Motherboard that leads to the front panel heres a solution for yous to get Excellent Sound Quality.

Note *These Steps were designed on a Windows XP Platform and may differ to different OS.

Step 0. (For people who havent got this enabled) if you have a case that has Front Panel Sound Output there is usually a Cord that has HD Audio which u plug into the motherboard after that proceed to step 1

Step 1. Update your Audio Device Driver to the latest www.realtek.com.tw (http://www.realtek.com.tw) and download the latest. Install and Restart.

Step 2. Plug your Headphone, Speakers into your Front Panel Sound Output.

Step 3. Click on Classic View. ,Go into Control Panel and Open "Realtek HD Sound Effect Manager".

Step 4. It should have their device as "Realtek HD Audio Output" Click on Mixer and under playback there sould be a Spanner (Mixer Toolbox) and Click Enable Multi Streaming. *You may lose sound*

Step 5. Go into Control Panel and Open "Sound and Audio Devices" *Down at Speaker Settings Set it up your Speakers or Headphones properties and click ok*. Now click on the Audio Tab and set the Default Playback as "Realtek HD Audio 2nd Ouput" (Front Panel Output) Enable "Use only Default Devices only" and Apply and Click OK.
You can skip step 5's *

You now have Realtek HD Audio.

When i enabled this, I Launched GRAW2 and it was able to show up as:

Generic Hardware
Extreme

EAX Enabled.

This is a little discovery i made and may help people who want better sound quality, I hope this information helps you. I do not know if this will work for everyone as i have only tested on my computer And i am not sure if this will help for all Onboard Audio.
