with your card? no you don't need one

audio in optical drives goes through the data cable, these type of cables were needed back in windows 98

Yeah, I can just hack one up though cant I? Out of a 4pin audio lead or something.
As long as it fits It will work?

A proper nvidia spdif cable on eBay is about 6.50!!!!!
