I would like to connect my HDTV to my computer.
Problem is I do not have HDMI output on my desktop, but I have one on my monitor.
What will happen if I connect additional HDMI cable from HDMI socket on the monitor to HDTV?
Monitor will still be connected to my computer.
Thanks

What connectors do you have on the computer now?
There is a possibility that you can upgrade GPU if need be.

If it does have two DVI outputs (most do) you can use the cable I linked and connect to the HDMI on the TV, the only thing is it does not carry sound.

It might do if a SPIDF connector is fitted.

It is actually mentioned in one of the reviews of the cable from a user with GTS250.
