(i hope this is the right location for this question, I wasnt sure)
My current system uses: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard Intel i5-3570k w/ stock cooler GeForce GTX 275 graphics card
My girlfriend got a new hdtv for christmas, and I would like to connect my computer to it via HDMI to play movies for her.
The problem: My graphics card(GTX 275) that I have been using for gaming over the integrated HD4000 graphics on the i5, DOESNT HAVE an hdmi port on it, its too old... but the motherboard DOES have an hdmi port.
Maybe I forgot to install the drivers for the hd4000, or the hdmi port driver, when i redid things?
At worst, I would like to be able to use the port and play movies on the tv, even if I need to swap to using the integrated graphics while doing this...does the gtx 275 not work outputting with the motherboards hdmi port because its too old?
IDEALLY, i would like to be able to play movies out of the hdmi port (with the integrated graphics?) for her, WHILE ALSO being able to still game with my gtx275 on my monitor
What am I doing wrong, and what is possible with my setup?

Your gtx 275 should have came with a DVI to HDMI converter. You could check your local electronics store for one of these if you don't have it.
would the sound from the movies go through that adapter to the tv? I think i do have one lying around somewhere.
