Its also a way to keep it from betting buried in the pile of inactive threads that usually lies beyond page 1.
(you can also noticed you wrote this reply following my bump. not sure it would have been so if i were not to bump this
on-topic: thanks for the reply.
perhaps i wasnt descriptive enough. i wasnt talking about an s/pdif connector in the back.
its a connection on the GPU thats inside the case and connects to another s/pdif connection on the motherboard. that transfers the sound from the mobo to the graphics card so sound can come through it.
my own card is an EVGA GTX560ti that has this connection (i believe next to the SLI connector) that connects with the motherboard.
im saying this because my card is not that old. and the graphics card im buying for the computer im building for my friend is really low budget (50$ tops)
EDIT: I might of mixed up my GTX560 with a GTX275 on my old computer. im not sure about anything now
