ATI cards don't need any additional connection to carry sound over HDMI.

You're right, the DVI does not carry sound, but
1) It can carry high resolution over longer distances than HDMI
2) There are multiple onboard DVI ports
3) How difficult is it to run a short audio cable to the stereo system(s)?

Kascom, ok sorry then

redfish I was only alerting the OP since everybod was suggesting DVI but no one mentioned that he had to use an external audio cable and, in my opinion, that isn't a detail...

Yeah, I know, I was just defending DVI cables and giving some actual reasons why they're a better choice in this situation.
-and actually it is a detail... it's just not a minor one
