The topic says it all: I would like to have two monitors via DVI for computer use and output to my TV using HDMI to send over video and sound.

Is this possible? What video card(s) would I need for it? Thanks!

amd hd 5000 or 6000 series card with displayport output (and one DVI and HDMI), and active displayport to dvi adapter.

or one of those Sapphire Flex edition cards, like this one

or any 2 cards you can get to fit on your mobo...
