hmmm, this could be a bit tricky....as i don't use cubase anymore...BUT you definitely should be seeing the Yamaha driver that came with the unit in your vst audio sytstm menu....ASIO is definitely the way to go, but you should see your interface right there....the fact its only showing two inputs and two outputs (stereo line in and line out) tells me that's just the stock card that came with the computer (realteck?)....if you don't see the Yamaha as an audio device to choose from, try checking your audio settings in windows control panel...you might have to select the yamaha as your primary audio device (which i would recommend anyway)
as far as driect x goes, i wouldn't worry anything about it, as it has very little to do with recording audio (as far as i know)
check to be sure the driver your computer is recognizing the driver that you installed that came with the yamaha interface.
most applications will allow you to record in both samplerates, 48k sounds a tiny bit better, but is better suited for DVD or HD applications, whereas CD or .wav and mp3 bound audio is generally 44.1.... you will be able to switch sample rates in both your yamaha driver AND within cubase (it is important to have them BOTH set to the same rate)
yes cubase will work fine with the yamaha box
and why did you install realteck drivers? is this what came with your yamaha box? if not, uninstall both and reinstall only the yamaha driver....
think of the yammy box as your new soundcard, your old one will not be used anymore so don't even bother hookin' anything up (microphone or speakers) to those little jacks on the comjputer....the yammy box is your new sound card now, it handles all audio comming into and going out of your computer. hence why it's called an audio interface...
hope that helps a bit
weclome to HRC!
