DVI to HDMI (vs.) HDMI to HDMI Tags: Graphics Cards DVI HDMI Graphics Last response: November 26, 2011 2:34 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Bacardi222 November 26, 2011 2:29:57 PM Hey all, I'll get right into it mang. So basically I'm a little confused and could use a bit of an explanation. I'm getting a new graphics card for my desktop for Christmas (6950) and I plan on hooking this up to my new 50 inch plasma tv. Which type of connector would be better, a DVI to HDMI or just a straight up HDMI, and why? Thanks for the assistance!

If you go directly through HDMI, you can use your TV's speakers. m 0 l Bacardi222 November 26, 2011 2:34:18 PM Ahh that makes sense, thank you very much! I think I'm going with the HDMI then. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
