    In your package can u see lyk a thin wire which has 2 pins in it? In ATI cards, the AUDIO is routed through the HDMI cable when playing back High def videos. It is designed in this way to eliminate the need for external cables.

    BUT, for nvidia cards they dont have this functionality. So, they included that 2 pin plug to attach to the motherboard and graphics card in order to route the sound from the HD video from the motherboard to the graphics card.

    I think the cable plugs into the S/PDIF socket on your motherboard, but double check it in case.

    ok thanks, now i did understand that 2 pins socket, its fun to admit that there must be a 2 pins cable must be included even for a DVI-HDMI connector, but the retailer shop seems removed this 2 addy's from the box.
    Never mind it doesn't work in combination of my EX38-DQ6 mobo aswell, perhaps some future skills later.

    Yeah I've got that exact same card and noticed that - no cable to plug into it though.
