Cable Help - DVI to HDMI w/ RCA Audio or HDMI to HDMI for better quality?

1019 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  russiancarl
Hey, I am confused on what is the best cable to get for my setup.

I currently have a 9800 GT gfx and it only has DVI out. Should I just get a DVI to HDMI cable and run that to TV for video and use an old 50' RCA audio cable for sound? It will be connected to a bedroom TV using only the 2 speakers that it has built in.

Or, should I upgrade my video card and get an HDMI to HDMI cable.

Or, get a 50' HDMI cable with a small DVI to HDMI adapter? I am worried more about quality loss on the short run connection for this than the other two options but it does leave open the possibility of using the HDMI cable by itself when in a few years I will upgrade my graphics card and computer.

Just use the existing RCA cable.

TV speakers do not produce good enough sound to distinguish any discernible loss in quality.
Thanks Hirent for your response.

That is what I will do.
