Adding HDMI output to MB

What is the least expensive way to do this, silent video card? Right now I'm connecting with DVI to vga and using a 3.5mm jack for audio to TV. This is the MB and video card

I'd just update the video card. Won't cost much to get a better card that has HDMI output on it.

Any suggestions? When this machine was put together, I'm not sure why I chose that card, not into gaming.

New video card? I don't see a lot of options there. You can get USB to HDMI stuff too, but that doesn't seem like the best option.

If your connecting it to a TV, its probably easier to use HDMI instead of dvi+audio cable.

Honestly, just buy any card with the outputs you like in the price range you want to pay. I prefer Nvidia cards myself but ati cards are nice too.

A amd hd6450 or nvidia gt 610 are typical htpc cards so they should work for you.
