Does anyone know if this will work? I don't know of any reason it wouldn't, but with the HDCP and different formats I want to make sure before I submit a PO for this equipment. This is for a dashboard / monitoring system at work (nothing nearly as exciting as gaming) and there will be text on the displays. I want to keep the signal digital so the text is as clear as possible. The displays run at 720p, if that matters.

Thanks in advance!

Yes...It will.. I have Dual HDMI Setup with my PC using 4890. Same case with my second setup using GTX 280

4890
DVI0->ATI/HDMI Converter-> HDMI Cable->70Inch HDTV
DVI1->ATI/HDMI Converter->HDMI Cable-> 24 Inch LCD Display / W Audio


GTX 280 OC
DVI0->BFG/HDMI Converter-> HDMI Cable->50Inch HDTV
DVI1->BFG/HDMI Converter->HDMI Cable-> 24 Inch LCD Display / W Audio

My LCDs and HDTVs are HDCP Compliant. I can play Blue Ray (Power DVD) on any of the display. I just drag it with the mouse.

All links through HDMI

It is possible. It works on both NDVIDIA or AMD/ATI video cards. Take note that i use 4890 and GTX 280. I can't comment on performance of lower end cards.
