I want to connect up my desktop PC to a TV via HDMI for watching video on, in addition to a normal (DVI) desktop monitor. Ideally, I would like the audio and video to go through the HDMI cable to the TV.

I found the GeForce 9600 GT, which comes with an SPDIF cable, but how can I tell if it supports passing audio over HDMI?

Also, are there any websites for comparing graphics cards?

ATI and NVidia cards should all have this now unless the manufacturer removes it in some editions.

Thanks for the info, I decided to get the ATI Radeon 5750 in the end. I read that all new ATI cards supported HDMI audio, but unlike nvidia cards they take the audio through the PCIe slot without hte need for an extra SPDIF cable. – Connor W Nov 15 '09 at 20:44
