Re: Should I use DVI or HDMI with my Alienware 23"?

DVI and HDMI are exactly the same image quality. Only dif is HDMI will also carry sound(kinda). This is why you can use an adapter to change DVI to HDMI.

If you want to use HDMI and want sound then the card must have the SPDIF sound jumper connected. It will then pass sound from the DVI to the HDMI adapter and put out sound or straight from the HDMI jack on the card. I think they have a new one that doesnt need the jumper for the sound but im not sure.
