I'm using a Visiontek HD3870 graphics card with built in 5.1 audio on the card. GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P, 2gb OCZ 1600mhz ram and an AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2 cpu with a rocketfish 550w p/s with an Antec 300 case. To use the built in sound that's on the graphics card, will the dvi to hdmi adapter that came with the card or "any" dvi to hdmi adpater allow me to use the graphics card built in audio??? I ask this because I'm going to use the dvi to hdmi adapter and run an hdmi to hdmi cable from the graphics card to the back of my samsung 40" 1080p television as a secondary display. Thank you for any help!
