    SPDIF input for streaming sound from your soundcard through the video card using HDMI because Nvidia didn't use their own built onboard sound cards like ATI *smart move IMO*

    Thank You so much!!! You are the best!!! I have one more question! I have on-board video adapter, and when i'm trying to use this Geforce adapter I have no any activity on the screen. What should i do? On-board video was disabled in bios already! Thank You!

    When the card is installed you get no screen post?

    As long as your cables are connected to the graphics card *not your mainboard outputs* and your onboard is disabled *don't really even have to do that 99.999% of the time anymore* there isn't much reason you shouldn't be getting a signal to your monitor unless the card is bad.

    Idk why you'd call it a smart move. 90% of my clients use their pcs with massive hdtvs 2 ft in front of them - cause they're idiots - and they always use the built in speakers. With ati cards all I've had to do is plug it in, hook up the hdmi and bam sound works perfectly. So now I use mostly ati cards.... err or did you mean it was smart move for ati?
