Display Port question with current pc setup

Hey there,

Ok so I have been looking at picking up a 7970 and I have looked at a specific ASUS one thats OCed out of the box. My primary concern with this specific card is that it has no HDMI port, only 2 DVI and 4 Display port. I want to absolutely confirm something about display port. I currently have my PC connected to my HDTV via HDMI and i utilize it for both video and sound (sound continues on to my hometheater system). I have read that display port does carry audio but I want to ensure that knowing my current system can output through the video card both signals, that it will also work fine through display port, as I do not want to run a seperate optical audio cable to my home theater system.

Thanks,

Bryan

  1. Yes, it does handle audio and video output simultaneously. Good Luck
  2. You're going to have to get a DP to HDMI adapter that supports Audio. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812270465
