I recently built a new machine and I see my 9800 gx2 has a hdmi out... so i am very tempted to buy a long hdmi cable and route this thing into my sony xbr bravia LCD.
I just have concerns being that I have so much juice going through this monster sized card (i dont wanna fry my tv or receiver). I have a 8 pin and 6 pin power cable going through this card.. (since its sli inside itself) its a heavy duty powerhouse.
I most likely will route this through my hdmi input on my onkyo receiver, not the tv. Are my fears of frying my receiver or tv irrational? Is frying my receiver/tv even a possibility?
Anyone else here have experience with hdmi output on heavy duty video cards?
Also, last question.. whats the longest I can run an HDMI cable without getting data problems due to the overall length? (100 foot? 200 foot?... or something way less?)
Thx in advance for the help.
