Nvidia HDMI uses the kernel module 'snd_hda_intel' as does your Azalia
mobo chip.  Steam is notorious for getting confused.  (yes, your GPU has
HDMI sound capability.) Gerneric or huge kernel? lsmod output (ie
missing module dependencies), installed pulseaudio (egad!); also output of

$ aplay -L

I would HIGHLY recommend NOT screwing around with a kernel recompile to
"eliminate" audio devices/modules. There is no way we can know what you
screwed up. Your questions is better asked on Linuxquestions.org for
better visibility, and not on a SBo mail list as is has nothing to do
with SBo.

So get they to LQ. Search first: your question might gave been answered
