I recently purchased an HD flat screen tv and intended to also use it as a computer monitor. I soon found out that my computer doesn't have an HDMI video output. I was informed that i could use a VGA to HDMI converter (about $75) or I could opt for upgrading the graphics card to one with HDMI out.
The main uses of this computer are to browse the web and record/mix multi-track audio.
I may be interested in some recreational, non-serious gaming, so i would consider spending a couple more dollars if a more worthwhile card is available and isn't too expensive.
The computer is an HP 6120f desk top.
Here's the link to the specs:
I'm wondering if i should just use a converter or if i should upgrade the card and, if the latter, which card is sufficient for my needs?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice.
