nVIDIA + Realtek = conflicts

Ok, I've heard that between nVIDIA Sound drivers and Realtek drivers can occur
conflicts/problems, mostly in games and game performance. Is that true?
I have installed Realtek HD Audio, so am I going to have sound problems while playing games ??? Or any similar problems?

Which drivers is better to use for sound, nVidia ones or Realtek?

Thanks.

I don't think you are going to get anything more than a subjective answer to your question of which drivers are best for sound. In the end it is a question that you will answer yourself from your experience.

With each pc that I have owned I have always installed a Creative audio card. However, at the suggestion of a forum member here I have tried the onboard RealTek ALC889 HD audio codec that is built into my Asus P6X58D-E motherboard and the sound is terrific. So much so that I have decided not to install the Xi-Fi Xtreme card that recently bought. But I am sure there are those who would NOT to the same.
