I bought a GeForce 9800 GTX about a year ago, which is only DVI. The optical audio on my motherboard is not working (see related thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...80#post8117280).

I am thinking of buying an NVIDIA HDMI video card, like a GT 220. They are only $80 and wouldn't mind switching over. Though, I don't want to jump out of the frying pan and into the oven. So, I am trying to determine what the available support is for HDMI video cards in xUbuntu 9.04.
