Hardware or software decode?

Just a quick question guys, I have an Audigy 2 sound card and use powerdvd for plaging dvd's. Am I better using the sound card to do my decoding for 5.1 sound, or should I let the software do it instead?
Which would have less impact on system resources?
Thanks.

I prefer to use the soundcard.

Hardware decoding will have less impact.
