In any case, its a known fact with the current NVIDIA generation that the good gaming cards just don't support bitstreaming.
IMHO, if you want gaming, just forget about the idea of bitstreaming. Decode the audio in your HTPC, and use 8ch PCM output through HDMI. It doesn't get any better then that. (There is no upside to bitstreaming, the only difference is that it maybe takes an hour of extra setup to get decoding working properly.)
