Default Re: GTX/GTS 460 For BD

The video card just arrived, and I'm preparing to install it, but I got to wondering about something...I can choose to connect it via either HDMI or DVI, but is one way necessarily better than the other, when the sound only goes through my 5.1 speakers, which have nothing to do with the monitor? The reason for asking is because an HDMI connector can't be screwed on like a DVI, and would be somewhat less secure. Since the Cyberlink BD Advisor complained that I was connected via a digital (nonHDCP) connector, does that mean that I must connect via HDMI?
