For my home media PC that I'm hoping to re-build, I'd like to get a new
video card that has native HDMI to make the audio+video less complex.  Any

I'm going to propose this as a Fathers Day gift so my upper end is the
sub-$100 level.


FWIW: Right now I have an older NVidia card with DVI-to-HDMI adapter for
video, and taking the audio out of the motherboard "digital out" using my
stereo to combine them.  That works well enough, but the card is old and
under-powered to display 1080 resolution, plus the audio occassionally
drops out for about 10 seconds...which appears to be motherboard audio
