Hey everyone,

I'm currently researching to build myself a new comp, i have a 46" 1080p tv. Im wondering if i will be able to plug in a 4890 to my tv through hdmi and use it at 1920x1080 to watch full hd movies with no problem.

Im also wondering if its better to connect it through dvi or hdmi.

Thanks

4890 is plenty of power for that(overkill, if you care).
If you use DVI, you will need some other connection for audio, HDMI will cover both audio and video.

HDMI if you want full 1080p is the only way to go.

Why are you not playing it at full res?42" can go bigger then that.

Spinny, ill also be using it for gaming so the card is fine i think :p , and darkvine im pretty sure thats the max resolution on an LCD tv i might be wrong, its a samsung series 6 touch of color.

All 1080p tv's are 1920x1080 no matter what the size.

Both DVI and HDMI will deliver a 1920x1080p signal to that TV for both BD movies, gaming, and general computer use, the choice really is whether you want to run a seperate audio cable or not. As spinny mentioned, HMDI can transmit both audio and video.

There is no picture quality difference between DVI and HMDI. However, DVI has a max cable length of 10 meters while HMDI has no defined max cable length.

Lastly, do not get ripped off into buying a more expensive cable under the guise that it is "better" than a cheaper one. The $25 generic brand 3ft cable from Radio Shack is just as good as the 3ft $100 Monster Cable from Best Buy.

For gaming as well, then that is a nice powerful choice.

As for resolution, you are correct. 1920x1080 is the maximum resolution for consumer TVs. Monitors go higher, but only go up to 30" screen size.

Your right. I think of standard res changing at 32" sorry about that.

Oh so theres no actual quality difference between hdmi and dvi, ill just stick to dvi then seeing that i use the 7.1 surround from my computer for the audio anyways.

Thanks
