should work fine with the hdmi though some Tv's sometimes require a certain hdmi input on the tv. Example, my samsung has three hdmi input but only the hdmi 1 play's the resultion is use 1360x 768. So if you have trouble running 1080(unlikely) just try another input

HDMI will work fine for 1080p (1920x1080). I have my TV running the same resolution from my computer (use it for watching movies) via HDMI.

I am on a 4890 and it works great for me too, sound and all. Even with XP.

My TV defaulted to 1080i but, when I set the refresh rate to 60 Hz, it then started outputing 1080p.

... does it matter either way you connect it? Hdmi just transmits sound as well.

Doesn't matter, i've transmitted through both, and actually depends on if you have the half or full dvi output too. I run dvi to hdmi with a proper dvi to hdmi cable that transmits both the audio and video over, but you can still do video dvi to hdmi as well
