Hi all,

Don't know if I'm posting in the right forum... I'm new here, be nice!

I'm looking to upgrade my motherboard (due to fan issues, etc) and I'll be keeping my old processor, graphics card, etc. The graphics card (HD4850) only has DVI outputs. If i buy a motherboard that has HDMI, can I use the HDMI output and still get the benefits of my dedicated GPU?

I have a feeling the answer is no, but I just wanted to check.


MoBo: Asus A8M2N-LA
CPU: Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (3.0 GHz)
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD4850

I'm afraid not, you would have to use the integrated graphics only to use the HDMI on your board, But the DVI connection on the card offers the same performance as HDMI, You'll just will have to use a sound cable,And also there is no way to use your card and the on board graphics in a crossfire setup.

Thanks. I was hoping to minimize the cables running between my PC, receiver, and TV. Oh well.
