I have a GA-P35-DS4 Rev. 2 motherboard and I'm wondering if there are any graphics cards I can get that would have an HDMI hookup? The graphics card I have now is nVidia GeForce 9600 GSO and the TV is a LG 24" flat panel. I just wanted to get an idea what graphics card (if any) I could get for the PC that would enable me to use the TV as a monitor.

Since you didn't provide much useful information I won't be able to help you as much as I could have. For example, knowing your full system specs could have allowed me to help locate a video card that would best compliment your current hardware in such a way that it wouldn't be bottlenecked by other system components. However, since you didn't provide detailed information, I will answer this the best I can anyway.

 

The http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2624 comes with two standard PCI-Express interfaces (16x/4x), so you have a lot of options to choose from. I am going to assume you are using a standard Core 2 Duo microprocessor and will make my suggestions based on that assumption. I also have no idea what kind of power supply you have, so look into that before purchasing any video card. Lastly, since all PCI-E revisions are backwards compatible, the choice of card basically boils down to if your power supply can safely handle it, and making sure not to spend too much on a video card that will be bottlenecked by your microprocessor

 

I am unsure of the e-commerce linking policy on these boards, so I won't provide any direct links.

 

These would be my suggestions:

 

1) EVGA 01G-P4-2650-KR GeForce GTX 650 ($119.00 at a popular online store). This card will need a HDMI to mini-HDMI cable, so factor that into the total cost also.

2) SAPPHIRE 100358OCL Radeon HD 7770 ($109.99 at a popular online store)

 

Go with whichever is a better fit for your budget as both should fit your needs well and are fairly cheap. If needed, they should also come with a DVI-TO-VGA adapter for the card so you can use an older 15-pin VGA connector if required.

Well, I guess I win the ultimate idiot award—just had a thought to look at the back of my graphics card and lo and behold there's a HDMI port on it already. Doh!

It happens to us all at times. I'm glad you have everything sorted out now.
