Since everyone else has gone off on a theoretical discussion as to whether DVI can support audio, I decided to go to the
manufacturers web site and see if this particular card supports audio.


If you look at the PDF spec sheet, it says it supports HDMI via an adapter sold separately.
If you look at the PDF manual, it has nothing at all to say about audio.
If you look at the PDF HDMI Flyer, it shows a connection to the SPDIF out header on the motherboard.
