If you run DVI out and adapt it to HDMI, you won't get audio (only video will run through the DVI) so I would think upgrading your card would be the best option. Your sound and video quality would be great, and it would all be handled with one cord. No cost asociated with a sound card, IMHO it's unceccesary. Just upgrade the video card and you're good to go.
You would also eliminate your problem setting the reciever. You would go to Video(x) and it would all switch over for you. Also consider this bluetooth controller for your home setup, I use this for my HTPC and it's pretty cool. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-920-000594-diNovo-Mini/dp/B0011FOOI2

"HDMI will handle the audio"

That would be perfect, that's what I want. I imagine it's not just as simple as getting the new video card and installing it, do I have to change OS settings somewhere to output the onboard mobo sound through the video card? or an actual physical connection internally between the mobo and vid card besides the obvious PCIe the vid card is plugged into?

That controller looks really cool

The audio is being bypassed completely when going this route so having a sound card with HDMI isn't beneficiary to you. At least this way you have a slight boost on video in case you wanna play a small game on it or something.
Keep the questions coming if you need help bud.

Thanks man. I read through the link you posted yesterday to the thread where you did this...did it explain in there how to set the mobo to output it's audio through the video card with HDMI?

Thanks guys

Believe it or not, it's that easy. Buy video card, receive. Shut down computer, install video card. Install drivers for card, and play your sound through your HDMI through your receiver. Which is a real nice one by the way, I'm super jelly.

I'm running HDMI sound from a youtube video through my monitor right now as I type this. Just installed card and drivers, and was good to go. Your receiver will handle everything for you, that's its' job. Plug it into the input, and there might be some settings to adjust on the receiver but not your computer. (Besides maybe going under sound under control panel and making your default the HDMI)

By settings on the receiver I mean you might need to tell the unit that when it switches to video x (let's say DVD input) you will want the audio from the HDMI cord and not from another source, such as a stereo RCA or digital optic. Once that is set up, it's gravy. thumb.gif

Well, you make it sound easy. I'll probably pick up an HDMI 430 and give it a try. I'm not worried about the receiver settings: everything else I run through it (BD player, cable box, XBox360) is a single HDMI connection and I never need to tell the receiver anything other than which input I want to use at the time.

Yes, the receiver is nice. I wish I had more time to use it. It's set up in my basement which I finished last winter. Ran in-wall wiring for everything, have a Paradigm 5.1 system, nice and tidy. Sounds great.

If anybody else wants to chime in with any ideas or insight I would appreciate it. It will be a while before I get a chance to try this solution out, but I'll try to remember to post back my experience.

It really is that easy lol. All you do is the normal video card thing you do when putting a new one in, hook the hdmi to your video card to your receiver, follow my guide, done. All in all, getting the audio to work should take less time that it would to get your video card installed.

Finally got around to doing this. I bought an Asus HD5450 silent card, installed it, and it worked without a hitch. HDMI from the computer to the receiver. Cost $40 at a local shop (I was watching craigslist for a while but got impatient.)

Now I think I will get a different case to put this system in so it fits in my 'entertainment center.'

Thanks to everybody that helped.
