Hey all.

I am finally getting an HDMI cable in and I want to get a video card that does audio through HDMI for my HTPC. Anyone have one out there?

Considering this one's been running for at least 3 years without requiring a 911 call, I suspect it's safe...... :)

How big is that heatsink block? It looks to be around 92mm or maybe even 120mm

my biggest concern is whether that card is powerful enough to do true 1080p, if that's what you're intending. I know the HD2600XT does, so you may want to look at the HD3650 or HD3670 before the HD3450
