Hi foks,

Can someone point me in the direction of a decent video card that will do audio over hdmi?

I have two monitors (in different rooms) both connected to one PC via HDMI cables. One is connected directly into HDMI port, the other is connected into DVI port with HDMI converter.

My video card is old and doesnt support audio over hdmi. Dont really want to spend too much but just wanted an idea on what video cards will support audio?

Anything remotely modern will support it, integrated graphics will do it. Your not trying to put the audio over the DVI to HDMI converter are you?

You cant have audio over DVI, however you may not need a new card. Take a look at your current one and check if there is a header labeled spidf.
