ATI 5800 Series Vid Card and HD Monitor

Having to buy a new monitor. Everything now days is HD. Can I come out of my ATI 5800 series Card with the HD output it seems to be equipped with?

The monitor comes standard with a uxga cable (15 pin). I will have to buy the HD cable for input if this configuration will work. Just curious if any of you guys are currently doing this and what if any challenges I might face.

Re: ATI 5800 Series Vid Card and HD Monitor

video card has, vga, dvi and hd plug but does monitor have it as well, use the dvi plug to get digital instead of vga plug for analog. the small hd plug is good when going to tv.


I am mentally challenging you.....so consider yourself mentally challenged.

By a monitor that has an HDMI input Vai. I use a hd cable from my HD5870 series to my monitor. Gaming in hd is the way to go.

Ya HDMI is a better solution when going digital. If you dont have HDMI make sure it at least has DVI

HDMI and DVI-I/D is the exact same singnal, different connections, there will be no difference in DVI-I(digital)/D and HDMI.

Money your right the only difference is hdmi supports audio. The only reason I chose hdmi over dvi-d is the cable quality is much better in hdmi.

Re: ATI 5800 Series Vid Card and HD Monitor

Gaming is a better for me now. The little I got to play this week was really slick. I stayed positive through most of my games... This a very good thing.. Yes dear friends you can buy strokes with better gear and routing..

Thanks gang for the input on the HDMI... I wish I had done this sooner.
