And Yes, if you want to plug an HDMI cable to DVI than that will work. Obviously you will not get the Audio via DVI adapter.
I was just about to make the purchase of the ATI card, then it hit me, I don't think my PSU can't handle it......

I would like some opinions, do I need a new PSU? I posted my system in post #15 here
replace the vid card with this ATI, add a USB scanner and 5 case fans and some extra room for external HDD's now and then. I wonder if I need a 550w or 600w. I just bought the one I have, maybe i should give up on upgrading and stay with what I have....
