Low end HDMI card with audio loopthrough

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I'm building a multimedia PC to connect to my 42" LCD display. I've heard there are several cards now which can pass the S/PDIF audio on the motherboard through the HDMI port on the video card. I was wondering which of the cheaper low end cards can accomplish this.
Unfortunately my LCD display can either use VGA, HDMI, or component, and the audio cannot be passed on a separate channel to the HDMI input (at least not that I am aware of)

I will mainly be using the PC for watching TV and playing DIVX's from a networked PC. I will eventually get a blu ray drive when the prices come down a bit, so I will want a GPU which can handle 1920x1080 mpeg2? playback, but I will not need it for any graphic intensive stuff like games.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some video cards which my meet the requirements.
