HDMI Out a Compromise?

Are there any performance differences (aside from Sapphire's sketchy rebate rep) between these cards?

SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3
POWERCOLOR AX4850 512MD3-DH Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3

I'm not sure why the majority of cards only offer HDMI by way of adapter, which defeats the purpose of having 1 cable for audio and video. I have a long run (~25') and hate to run 2 cables if I don't have to. Thanks and happy Thanksgiving.

From what I can tell unless it's something obscure I guess there's not a compromise. I hope so anyway, I already made the purchase!
