Is there a dual HDMI video card w/sound out there? Will I be able to mirror two tv/monitors with sound using the integrated speakers? Is there a card with two hdmi, a vga and a dvi? Should I use two cards and switch over when needed?

Not that I can find. Your only option would be a card that has 2-DVI out puts and use DVI-D to HDMI converter but it won't have sound.

That's what I'm trying to beat! There are cards with dvi and hdmi, but I do not know if I could run a dvi to the tv/monitor with add on speakers and still run hdmi with sound to the big screen. I'm surprised that there is not one out there! Am I the only person that needs this?

Well, I have my card(s) set up DVI out to monitor, and the other DVI output hooked up to the TV via the HDMI. 4870s decode sound on card and feed it to the TV so I use my TV speakers for audio. ATI cards generally have sound decode built in.

Please tell me your exact set up and names of the cards. Do you have two cards?

Single ATI 4870, twin DVI out, 1 HDMI adapter. As far as I know all 4XXX series ATI and up do onboard sound. I have to right click on my volume icon, select "Playback Devices", select "ATI HDMI Output", and thats it. I have another 4870 in my old system I use as an HTPC that's used HDMI from day one.

I think the later NVidia cards also have a connector to hook up the SPDIF output so you can use an HDMI cable for audio as well.
