Default Dual HDMI

I will purchasing an e8400 and need help choosing a good motherboard. It needs to have dual nics, one nic for my xbox 360 and the other to my Direct TV DVR bridged by a wireless adapter.. My main concern is i need two HDMIs. I want to connect to my viewsonic 22 inch via HDMI as well as my Vizio 50 inch Jive. I was wondering if i can have a mobo with an onboard HDMI port as well as a good video card ( nothing too crazy, not a pc gamer) with an HDMI port. Its driving me crazy. Help please!

Default Re: Dual HDMI

I believe that on board HDMI ports are usually connected to on board video and adding a video card would disable it. You can get a DVI to HDMI adapter though. This way you can just set your video card to duel monitors and conect the HDMI to them. Newegg.com - KINGWIN ADP-02 HDMI Female (19 pin) to DVI-D Male (24+1 pin) Adapter - Adapters & Gender Changers
