In my thread "Did ground potential damage my computer's HDMI ports?", I asked which graphics card to buy to view 1080p video. But that question is probably lost in the HDMI issues so I'm asking that question in a separate thread.
I need to display on a Samsung SyncMaster 2253BW, 1650 x 1080 resolution via VGA or DVI.
I also want to display movies on a Samsung 1080p, 60Hz HDTV set via HDMI.
I don't play games.
Would an ATI 5450 graphics card be a good, cheap choice?
