Now days modern GPUs can automatically get sound through PCIe. After installing GPU driver right click
Sound >>> Playback devices >>> Set AMD/Nvidia HDMI as default.
I just put a 6450 in my HTPC, that card was made for HTPC great card!Originally Posted by tombug;15234340
I have a p5k-e that I wanna do this with. So I'm assuming as long as the drivers are there for it, it will work. I never realized that they switched it like this.
Looks like I'm gonna just get the 6450 then. Thank for updating me with the times.
Otherwise I would still be looking for one.
Cool man, glad it worked out for you, yeah, that HD 6450 looks pretty good for a silent card that can deliver movie playback.Originally Posted by JeremyFr;15236720

Yeah after finding out how lousy my 780's built in video card was even though it was an "HTPC Motherboard" I needed to get something that was full out HDMI 1.3/1.4 compliant. Hopefully I won't need to upgrade again in a while my HTPC is strictly HTPC so no gaming or anything else.Originally Posted by anubis1127;15236763

I'm using a gt240 in my HTPC, for DXVA, and some light gaming, and I couldn't be more satisfied, it runs cool, silent, and doesn't draw much power.
