Question about High Def
 
I don't think my graphics card I got for my HTPC has a HDMI port, I think it's just DVI would that still be providing HDMI? I'll try and get the card info in a day or two, but I believe it said it pushed audio and video out the same cable, is that possible with DVI? If so can DVI produce true HD?...I really want true HD badly.

You can get DVI to HDMI adapter, DVI to DVI on your TV will still push HD though as the resolution is not more then 1080p in most cases. I cannot recall if DVI pushes audio, I think HDMI only will?? You can go right from your sound card/audio to your set though no problem.

difference between dvi and hdmi is hdmi carries audio. some dvi can as well but either will give you same picture quality/size

I know the DVI-HDMI adapter I had with my 4870x2 could pass through audio. However, I think they're pretty special adapters, although that adapter worked with my GTX570 for sound as well. Also, it'll handle 1080p no problem.

It's ok I got a 5670 and it does say HDMI on the box :)

The 5670 can handle 1080p HD playback with no issues whatsoever, seeing as I've used one to do just that.
