Yes you do need an adapter but i would think/hope it would come with the card bundle.

To save space the manufacturers use mini-HDMI. Both my ASUS Geforce GTX560 Ti and my GIGABYTE Geforce GTX460 OC came with mini HDMI adaptors. So don't worry they are included in the package. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>High End Graphics Cards with mini--HDMI> Related ressources: ForumNew High End Comp - Sudden New Graphics Issues ForumHigh-End personal Workstation Guidance ForumMid- high end Gaming rig ForumHigh-End Gaming Rig vs. "Mid"- End Gaming Rig ForumMini-HDMI to DVI adapter?
