I believe the application you use might prefer Nvidia or AMD card. Just depends on the app. Like Adobe right now prefers the Nvidia vs AMD's. However I read somewhere that Adobe will eventually support the AMD cards. For under $100 I'm thinking the Radeon HD 6000 series as they support HDMI, display port, DVI/VGA port. The new AMD APU can stream HD np and are great price, but looking at new MB, APU etc...

Subject: [olug] HDMI card suggestion (with audio)

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 suggestions?

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 related.
