    Good Day - I have an older pc - it has a PCI & AGP slot available for a video card upgrade. I would like the video card to do dual purpose -1) Support widescreen for my 19" monitor 2) I would like to also connect the PC to view on my TV. My TV has all the connections including HDMI - it would be nice if the pc to TV connection would have both the audio & video. Sometimes I like to watch some soccer games on the TV which are only on the computer. I really don't do PC gaming - so I'd like a card which would make the streaming soccer games look as good as possible. Thanks for your help! Deca :thumb:

    Hello JRViejo - how are you? It's a Sony PCVRS511P. The reason I've posted is I've seen something very odd while shopping for this item. Many cards actually say they are HDMI - and when you physically look at the pictorial of the card - there's NO HDMI output!!! It's very strange. Thanks you, Deca

    Decapad, if you are seeing HDMI capable cards, but with DVI connectors, perhaps all you might need is a HDMI Adapter.

    A quick look around tells me that true HDMI output connector graphic cards are mainly PCIe (PCI Express) and your present PCV-RS511P Specs shows only PCI. Unless someone knows of AGP cards, with HDMI outputs, the adpater looks like your best bet for your older PC. Hope the info helps.
