GPU HDMI questions
 
I am currently running my sound through my GT210's hdmi port (soon to be 460 though) instead of through my sound card and I was wondering...
How does this effect the video cards performance?
At the moment its the best solution for me because I also have my 360 connected to my monitor, and the sound system set up is a flaky piece of crap that only works when connected with a single green audio cable.

Its a temporary setup while I start an warranty claim with samsung, but at least I have sound. :haha:




A visual explanation because I can

GT210 > HDMI > Monitor > 3.5mm M/M Stereo Audio Cable > Sound system
Xbox > HDMI >

Video Cards
 
As far as I know, there is a small jumper that usually comes with the card that hooks up between the card and a spot on the motherboard. My old 280 OC and 295 GTX both came with this cable. If you didn't get one try talking to the manufacturer's rep as I couldn't find one unless I tried ebay. When I conacted my rep he sent one free of charge. Gotta love XFX. Also with HDMI you don't need anything else, it carries both digital audio and video.

Haha well I have to hdmi it to my monitor before I can get it to the sound system. Its a really old receiver, and it is barely holding on. Too bad my other one kinda... blew up out of nowhere.
