    Hey guys,

    I have a Packard Bell IMEDIA D3318 tower pc, 2GB ram, dual core, using windows 8 pro...now I did have it hooked up to a monitor but seeing as I have a TV that I could use instead and trying to get away from a Sh*t load of plugs clogging up my sockets. So the tower doesn't have an HDMI card in it and that's what I want to use but don't really know what to buy that would be suitable for the pc.

    Any help would be appreciated :D

    What slots have you got available on your motherboard? You can just buy a cheap PCI-E GFX Card that has HDMI out on it.

    Don't expect awesome gaming graphics, but these are what we use at work:
    VTX3D 1GB Radeon HD 5450 DDR3 Graphics Card with Low Profile Bracket: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    I don't think you would get sound transferred on that cable. DVI = Digital VISUAL Interface
