    Maybe he does. Even if he does, getting a videocard will only benefit him in every way possible.

    He is going to have to do a lot more than get just a $20 video card to do that.
    trust me the $20 video card is going to be the best piece of hardware on this guys computer.

    Next time save yourself the the keystrokes.

    In fact, don't even bother letting go of your dick. Just keep on doing what you're best at...

    So, in plain english, is there a pro reason that one would want to split audio and video?

    You have more control (read quality control) over the audio signal.

    Sirc's brilliant retort of "running HDMI to the t.v. then running the audio from the t.v. output" (so you can run better sounding preamps, amps and speakers than what is built into the television) is actually a way to split the video and audio. (The audio outputs obvioulsy do not send any video information...) If you don't run the audio through something else you're stuck listening to those tiny POS speakers that come with the set.

    The goober agreed with me and he's too dumb to realise it. Honestly, I don't even know what's he going on about now.

    No. HDMI can handle both. Get a good speaker system and you'll be fine. Don't listen to Mr. Machette. He can't do algebra.
