I am looking into upgrading my video card as it is getting old and I have out grown it. I am not into gaming as much as I am videos. I use my PC as my DVR and also use it to watch videos from my DH cameras. I do a fair amount of video encoding but I don't think that has much to do with the video card. I need at least 720P HDMI with audio. 1080P would be nice for the future. I might have to buy an audio card to allow plugging the audio into the video card for the HDMI. Here is a link to my MB. I does have SPDIF so I may be in luck. Has anyone here got their audio over HDMI to work? What do you recommend?
