GPU with HDMI Out

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a 37" 1080P LCD TV and was messing around with it and wanted to see how it would look with my PC setup with it. I used an S-Video cable cause I didn't have the RGB connection it needed but started to like the fact of having a screen that big for games but S-Video would not cut it. So this brought up in my mind what GPU can I buy for roughly the same price/performance as my 8800GT with an HDMI out? I was looking at the Palit 8800GT but I'm hoping to get something from ATI instead but does not really matter, any ideas? Also for any ATI recommendations, what manufacturers can be compared to, let's say, EVGA or XFX? Not a cheapo brand

You can just get a DVI-HDMI cable or converter. They work great, with minimal quality loss.

there should be no quality lose...HMDI is the same as DVI. DVI doesnt have Audio like HDMI and but HDMI doesnt have Analog like DVI.

The Radeon 3870 is the best, you'll even get audio through it.
