I currently have my PC, TV, BluRay player, Cable box and XBOX all in my bedroom. As you can expect this takes up a lot of space. I am wanting to remove my desk and monitor and just use my TV / Home Theater system for my monitor and audio. I already use my LG LCD TV as a secondary monitor a lot, but I do it via VGA.
I am going to purchase a reciever and speakers as I currently do not have them. I want to upgrade my video card to something that will send audio via HDMI at a decent quality. Prefer 5.7 or 7.1.
Budget would be under $500.
I primarily use my PC for gaming (LoL right now, but I play Black Ops 2 as well. MMO's possibly in the future).
I would also prefer to stick with NVIDIA.
I have an Asus EN9500GT V2 video card. The only way sound will come out of the HDMI cable is if you hook up a sound card audio out to the video card audio in. I bought an Asus Xonar DG for this purpose and hooked it up but I still do not get any sound out of HDMI. :-( So this is one reason why someone might be asking about a video card that has good audio *without requiring a separate sound card*.
