  1. NVIDIA cards dont support audio through DVI/HDMI...

    Your options are as follows:
    1) Optical Link or Coaxial link from your PC to your TV
    2) Regular audio cable from your sound card to your TV
    3) Switch to AMD/ATI video card that support audio through DVI/HDMI.

    Its your choice

    Just for your reference I use am NViDIA 8800GT. To get audio when i watch Blue-Ray, HD-DVD, DVD, HDTV from PC i use optical link going to my 7.1 receiver. I use a coaxial audio link from PC to my TV.

    hope the info helps

    I second this, the bare minimum and easiest way is to get a 3.5mm Stereo-RCA cable, pretty cheap and does the trick
