Make sure your board supports an S/PDIF connection. It will not automatically run sound through your card without that cable.

speeds are 680/1900 msi web site.
what are your thoughts???
If your 32" "monitor" is 1080p then you should get a card that can better handle HD resolutions (gtx+?, 4870, gtx 260, etc). If it's a 720p you will probably fine with the linked MSI card, though a 3 year warranty skeeves me a bit.

i thought that going up from a 8600 to a 9800 would handle things better.
im not in to crisis, cod4, or other first person shooter games that require more from a card.
i like command and conquer, baldurs gate, the first 3 fallouts, warcraft, diablo.
all i can do on my hdtv is 60hz, it's not like i can run 80 to 85hz and get
100+fps, i wish.

and yes my board supports spdif, all i have to is hook it up and adjust the settings.

i guess the 9800gt is not a good chouse.
i'll look in to a bigger power supply and a better card.
thanks for the input guys. reps to all.

I had a MSI 8800GT and I loved it was a great card, this should work like a charm for what you are going to be using it for. The machine I had the 8800GT in was only using a 430W Thermaltake powersupply and I didn't seem to have any issues with it. But a bigger PSU would be better.
