Question on a couple cards..Do they have a spdif connector? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: July 30, 2009 12:43 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Pitbull30 July 29, 2009 1:13:10 AM Hi, I was looking at a couple different cards. In the pics I dont see the SPDIF audio plug that comes with it or on the card. So I just wanted to know if they are capable of that before I buy one. My intention is to hook up a SPDIF cable to the motherboard so I can get sound from HDMI>DVI. Here are some of the ones I was curious about (or maybe I just dont see the connection): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Also, if you recommend a different one or have a preference on these that would be cool too.

SPDIF header on mobo has 3 pins. Use only the two that are adjacent. Signal + ground. No way connect the third pin a little distanced from the other two, the +5v. It will fry the video card.

You may be able to send sound to HDMI through the audio driver properties.
