Hi, I'm considering upgrading to an Nvidia GTX 460 1gb and I'm wondering if there's a Realtek driver available  that enables sound to be carried over a DVI to HDMI converter? in a similar Vein to Ati's 4000 Radeon series...

I understand the mini HDMI port will suffice and the card deals with this but I don't have a 10M mini HDMI cable.

So, does the card also have the above capability or is it a specific driver from realtek.

Many thanks.

I believe that the new GTX 400 series cards no longer require an SPDIF audio cable attached to them. Therefore, the audio should be routed through the PCI-E bus via software.

Not sure that you need anything special.

One thing to note, if you're using the PC to watch DVD's, your DVD software may need updated for it to interface with the GTX 460 for audio. nVidia had a note about this as well.
